Conferences

This is an introduction to the portfolio of our conference micro-sites developed to provide you with valuable resources and data generated from our growing family of product development conferences.

Each of these micro-sites offers links to past and up-coming events. After an event is held, they provide access to downloadable world-class speaker presentations and special conference reports.

Clicking on an upcoming event, allows one to preview programs and speakers, sponsors and table top exhibitors at the event as well as the opportunity to register as an attendee. Attendance provides unique benefits. For individuals, the educational aspect is a wise investment in careers through obtaining difficult to obtain technical and trend information, which enables them to more efficiently perform their work. Companies that invest in their employees’ education net a more skilled workforce and motivated employees. And, the invaluable peer-to-peer networking and exchange of ideas with industry experts and peers cannot be replicated in an online environment.

The critical value of in-person was acknowledged by one digital pioneer:

“There’s a temptation in our networked age to think that ideas can be developed by email and iChat. That’s crazy. Creativity comes from spontaneous meetings, from random discussions. You run into someone, you ask what they’re doing, you say ‘wow,’ and soon you’re cooking up all sorts of ideas.”–Apple, Inc.’s Steve Jobs
