#TPCE14 Update from St. Louis: Great Views, NFL Game Ticket Winners, and Sunrise Scramblers

By Bethany Foyt

The last day a half has been so chock-full of good times and fun happenings at The Partner Connections Event 2014 (#TPCE14), I’m not sure how to condense it into a short article.

You know what they say- pictures say a thousand words, so we’ll give that a try…

_DSC7163#TPCE14 Sponsor Reception took place Monday evening on the 20th floor of the Renaissance Hotel and man, what a view. Not only were attendees wooed by the beautiful chandeliers and nummy assortment of pastas, but by our amazing event sponsors. Learn more about each of their companies and products here:




Pat Gibson from Plumbline Solutions and Meghan Burner from Click Dimensions were our proud winners of NFL tickets to the Rams vs. 49ers. Rumor has it, Pat gave his tickets to his employees and Meghan opted to bring along her boss. Sounds like all had a great time, even if the home team didn’t pull it off.


An eventful evening didn’t stop attendees from getting up at the break of dawn for a little exercise this morning. A great thank you to deFacto Global for sponsoring and hosting the Sunrise Scramble this year and other than a slight mist, the rain stayed away!
