Hold conference when the product can be demonstrated rather than just discussed. Have vendors discuss in breakout sessions
This to me was more of a sales presentation searching for ideas rather than what I anticipated it to be. I felt that what was shared could have been done via email with a link to a powerpoint and survey following. I did not feel that the amount of people who attended was necessary at this point.Once the product is near completion and can be demonstrated (hands on) and discussed with on-site vendors as well as DPI , that would make for a more successful conference.
