These events are where policy, direction, future challenges, and opportunities of our industry are shared and shaped. Two to three days spent here are worth a month of research and work. Block the time, pack your bags and book a seat! You won’t be disappointed, you’ll learn from those I’ve been working with in this space since 2005 as well as the best and brightest newcomers to the industry.
