"I can never say enough good about the staff of RMB Fairgrounds. Everyone is always courteous, prompt, and so easy to deal with. Booking with Stephen and Angela, planning food with Katrina, and IT service with Eddie are a snap and the RMB Fairgrounds will continue to be the go-to facility for many Coast Guard events." - Mr. John Bray, United States Coast Guard Meeting, August 2018

"Definitely will recommend this venue. My next function will be here, without a doubt! Hands down one of the best venue's around! Great staff, kudos to the crew!" - Mrs. Maria Cooper, High School Graduation Party, June 2018, "The event was a huge success!!! Everyone was extremely impressed with the food, the decor, the great staff, etc. It was overall a very well attended event and we were very, very pleased." - Mrs. Catalina Yaklin, Robstown Hardware Client Appreciation Party, May 2018

"On behalf of the exhibitors (our kids) of the 2018 Nueces County Junior Livestock Show, we want to say thank you for helping us make our 12th year in the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds another huge success. There are always many special challenges to overcome, but because of the strong working relationship between the Junior Livestock Show and Spectra we overcame those challenges. Together, we produced the largest show in our entire 83rd year history selling another all-time record at the sale. Your team of professionals at the Spectra proved you could be flexible, find solutions that produced win-win situations on sensitive issues, plus truly understood the meaning of good old fashioned hard work! Feedback received from the many volunteers involved. I can truly say that the Spectra team has evolved into a critical component of the success of the Nueces County Junior Livestock Show. Thank you for the hard work and dedication and looking forward to the 2019 Show." - Rene Chapman NCJLS Bookkeeper
