What You Won’t Want to Miss at IAEE Expo! Expo! 2016

IAEE Expo! Expo! is here! This year’s event is all about action, and it takes place in sunny Anaheim, CA. Being a newcomer to the “show for shows” and not wanting to miss out on any opportunities, I put together an Expo! Expo! must-see list.

Here’s a peek at some the educational opportunities, exhibit booths and networking events that I’m really excited to see!

Educational Opportunities

We’re in an ever-changing industry, which is why learning what others are doing and new trends they’re seeing is so important. With 70+ learning opportunities, attendees will have their fill of knowledge by the end of the week! Here are a few of the learning sessions I’m excited to see:
