"I really enjoyed connecting with the individuals there - experts, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs." - Business consultant

"The open panel format with audience participation was great!" 
- Industry association representative

"The venue was great, the food fabulous, and the session facilitation terrific, leaving a lot of time for questions. This audience input added great value." 
- State government representative

"The 'Exploring EPR for Packaging' panel was off-the-charts excellent. One of the best sessions I've ever attended in over a 40+ year career! Not only were the panelists clearly experts in their fields, but what they had to say blew us away."
