Houston Conference and Trade Show:
Everywhere you looked – you came face-to-face with opportunities!

They say everything is bigger in Texas…rodeos, barbecues and cowboy hats. But at the Investment Recovery’s 2016 Conference in Houston – the big thing was opportunities.

“Great networking opportunities!!!”  –Ciara Jordan, Cox communications

From the reception Sunday night to the Recognition Lunch on Wednesday, attendees had a jam-packed agenda of networking, industry best practices, new products and services, takeaway solutions and leadership skills. 

“I had an awesome 1st time!  Hoping to take the CMIR next year.”  –Glynn Davis, QuikTrip Corporation 

And oh yes…fun!  The Tuesday night event was held at the Houston Rodeo featuring bronco-bustin’ and rocking out with mega-rapper Pitbull.  A little rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of this IR crowd!

“Great Conference!!! Nice people. Lots of learning. Looking forward to next year.”  –Karin Stewart-Harmon, Environmental Remediation Services

All in one place at one time. 

“Great place to meet vendors to suit your needs.”  –Chris Drake, Colorado Springs Utilities
