What People are Saying

 This was my first PEMAC conference and I found it extremely well organized. The speakers and subject matter were top notch and relevant to both the conference outline and my own needs as a representative from my corporation... I am impressed beyond words!

I have attended the conference for three years now and am always amazed how much I learn. It's also great to meet with colleagues and put faces to names. I hope to continue having the opportunity to attend this conference.
