There was a wealth of information in the short 1-hour segments which allowed you to set your own path and avoid the sessions that were not relevant to you.

The attendees were quality and had a high level of engagement with sponsors. I was also pleasantly surprised at the number of international attendees. There were lots of folks from Sweden, Denmark, and Germany, all of whom stopped by the booth and were interested in our products (always nice!).
