I thoroughly enjoyed the conference! It was obviously carefully planned. I appreciated the later start on Tuesday, the hospitality lounge and making appointments, and the presenters who were all top notch. The location was spectacular! I hope to return next year. I would be interested in a nuts and bolts session on CSS.

Great Job! I have been to STC, ATD, and Lectora conferences in the past. This was one of the best!
