“I wanted to let you know we had a great time at Tampa Bay Veg Fest as an exhibitor this year! We loved our location and our neighbors. The atmosphere was high energy, great music, great food, lots of sweet feathery and furry friends too! We would love to be your doTERRA vendor again next year  if that is a possibility. Thank you!”
