    What type of sessions are included in the conference?

    Each year varies based on the call for proposal for sessions.  We offer informative presentations, workshops, moderated panels, and round-table discussions.  Our goal is to put on a good show, but our focus is on content delivery to ensure that all of our attendees walk away with a feeling that their time was well spent at the conference.

    Do you have an exhibit hall?

    We do not separate our vendors from our attendees throughout the day.  Our large facility has a very wide rectangular hall that surrounds the session rooms.  Our vendor setups line the hall to ensure maximum exposure and conversation for our attendees.  There are 15-minute breaks between each session as well as an hour and 15-minute break for lunch and exhibits.

    Are there scanners provided to collect attendee contact information?

    We do not utilize scanners to capture attendee details for our partners.  The event is FREE for all to attend, so this is one way that we cut down on the expense to make it possible to deliver a quality conference at the absolute best price for all.
