Variety of Content and Activities

Hear What Past Attendees Are Saying

A chance to spend a week with a great, diverse, group of people, who both appreciate the details but see the big picture. COMMUNITY! On a more tactical level, the "meet the speakers: and "lunch networking" sessions were great ways to get to engage and interact with all the attendees. The keynote speakers were not only insightful, but their participation in multiple events throughout the conference was great. They were not only featured artists, but partners in the vision.

- Rich Helling, (Dow)

This is the most well-designed and operated conference that I've ever attended. Fantastic job with enabling such a high degree of engagement and interaction.

- C. Pierce, (Eastman)

The level of conversation in the networking sessions is fantastic. I wish they would be longer. When this passionate group of people start solving problems, the conversations must go on.

- Luke Monhollon (SciSpace)

The challenge sessions are great. I like that the sessions had a similar theme. It really helped connect the dots and hit the message home.
