Look Who's Coming!

Our conference is well known for all of the high quality, much needed and timely educational sessions you get. But we're told the networking, conversations, and sharing that goes on among our attendees outside of the sessions is highly valuable also. This year, for the first time, you can take a peek at our attendance list to see who's coming — and adding value to those "between session moments." Check back often as the list grows daily—swelling to 1,200 with on-site registration! Be sure to add your name to this growing list. Who knows? You might inspire someone else to attend the conference. Click here to see who's coming!
