I went to the Forum to get the opportunity to more fully understand IDEA and what the future looks like. It certainly reaffirmed how important information and its flow are to the future of our business - it was well worth the trip.

The networking opportunities at this event are second to none. I know of nowhere else where you can get a relatively clear vision of where the industry is heading on multiple fronts, not just solely from a technological aspect.
