The 2nd Annual AutumnFest occurred at Prism’s headquarters in Williamsburg, VA on September 21st, 2016. Due to the generous support of our sponsors AutumnFest was a great success. Attendance increased 184% compared to last year and our industry leading sponsors facilitated 5 live demonstrations, 7 technical sessions and 14 exhibitor booths. CECs were awarded for all sessions and lunch was catered by Pierce’s PITT Bar-B-Que.

The event was great and very well put together. I got a lot of great info out of it and it was nice to be able to step outside and see demonstration’s as we went along. Great job!
On behalf of staff of the James City County Division of Engineering and Resource Protection, I would like to thank you and your staff for your professionalism, hard work, and effort to sponsor the 2nd Annual technical conference and exhibition at firm’s headquarters on September 21, 2016.
Several of our engineering and compliance inspection staff attended the event. It was an awesome training and professional development opportunity for our staff as it relates to our division’s duties associated with the County’s stormwater pipe/facility inspection and asbuilt/ construction certification programs. It was very helpful also for us to understand more about equipment and technologies available for trenchless rehabilitations. Everything was wonderful including the speakers, demonstrations, booths and exhibits and all your staffs assistance – right down to even the layout and fall decorations in your shop.
The event exemplifies the County’s core values of collaboration and excellence and we were proud to attend this event at a local business of James City County. Again, thank you and we look forward to next year’s 3rd Annual AutumnFest!
I appreciated the safety concern raised (highlighted) by your field personnel during one of the demonstrations. A job cannot be “well done” without safety as a priority. In addition, I did take away that better bids will result from breaking down rehabilitation bid items in “roadways” versus “right-of-ways” due to ease of access. Thank you for a very worthwhile and informative event.
You hit the nail on the head the AutumnFest was fair and balanced the speakers and staff was pleasant and well informed. I felt that each person had enough time to talk about their product and the displays were fantastic. Thank you, I am looking forward to your next AutumnFest!
I just wanted to say thank you again for a great day at your facility. The presentations and demonstrations were very informative and not loaded with sales pitches. We learned a lot and now have another tool (Prism Contractors & Engineers) in our tool box to help us in our efforts to maintain service to our customers. You, Debbie and your team did a great job in making everyone feel welcome. Thanks again!!
AutumnFest was an excellent show. Getting an understanding of this industry from a contractor’s perspective and how it applies to municipal bidding and contract management was invaluable. The demonstrations added the real world dimension to the technical presentations. MSC Equipment would be more than happy to participate in any future events that Prism may have.
Thanks for the invitation and opportunity to attend your AutumnFest. I found it to be very informative and well organized. I learned many new things related to the industry. It was well worth the time invested to attend.
