This was my first virtual conference. At first, I thought it was a crazy idea but after attending, it was fantastic with pertinent and relevant information. I will definitely attend more in the future. Thanks, well done!

Thank you for the information provided. I especially appreciated the cybersecurity for execs session. I will use the session content to educate our executives and board members. Thank you!

Conference was easy to follow, topics were very good, and overall, a really nice experience. Information related to the conference that was sent to me prior to and the day of was helpful. Excellent job!

Loved the layout of the conference and it was easy to use. I felt the sessions I attended were very informational and will be able to apply those concepts right away. Overall, a great conference! Look forward to sharing the recordings with my colleagues!
