I have to say, the conference just felt good. People were networking, sponsors were showing off their wares, speakers were educating and the attendees were absorbing information and asking questions.
We never had so many people, so many speakers and honestly, I was nervous it would take away from the personality of the previous events. But if anything, it made the conference so much better. Planning it was an exhausting few months, but it paid off!
Let me share with you some of the news/blog coverage I found across the web from the event:
