"Hospitality is what made the second annual Greenbrier Concours both unique and successful. They’ve embraced the new era of inclusivity by creating three days of events with something for every automotive enthusiast, not just those guys with impeccably restored million dollar cars." — Lisa Smith, The Decor Girl Blog
