“I always receive emails about the various conferences you folks run, but have never been on the 'receiving end'. I was truly amazed by your onsite presence and expertise. I’ve never attended a meeting that ran so smoothly. UF truly has a significant resource in OCI.”Dennis J. Gray, UF/IFAS Mid-Florida Research & Education Center
“OCI routinely negotiates unbelievable deals for our conferences, saving us thousands and thousands of dollars. But as far as I am concerned, the contribution OCI makes to conference planning goes well beyond 'saving money'. The professionalism of the OCI team makes conferences run so smoothly that the organizers and attendees can focus on the programmatic content of the conference.”G. Ronnie Best, Courtesy Professor, UF/IFAS Soil & Water Science Department
“I want to communicate how much I appreciate the high quality service that was (and is being) provided by OCI.

I look forward to working with you all again on the next edition.”Bob Swett, Florida Sea Grant, Boating & Waterway Management Program
“Working with OCI to organize the Laurel Wilt conference was great a experience for us. I will definitely work with OCI again on future conferences and encourage others to do the same. Thank you for doing a great job!”Jason A. Smith, Associate Professor of Forest Pathology, State Forest Health Extension Specialist, School of Forest Resources and Conservation
