Overall an excellent conference! The best one I've been to. I found all of the content to be useful and informative, and as always, I came away with some great tidbits that I will use to expand my IR program. I also met up with the best of the best in the IR community, which is one of the greatest benefits of these conferences. Looking forward to next year! ”
