“Together SC has orchestrated an annual gathering of our state’s nonprofit leaders for over twenty years. To facilitate participation, each year we partner with a different community. In 2015 we had 600-700 join us for three days at the Spartanburg Marriott.
If I had my druthers, we’d hold our summit there every year.
Hands down, they offer the best combination of comfortable meeting rooms, attentive hotel staff, free parking, affordable hotel rooms, great restaurants nearby and engaged community leaders of any hotel we’ve worked with in the state.”
