"Highly organized and orchestrated schedule that ensured quality networking between vendors and potential customers.  Talks were good.  Roundtables were good. I found it a very useful experience that helped with networking and information dissemination on current IP issues."

"Informative, open exchange of information and ideas. I greatly appreciated how several of the more senior, experienced attendees were willing to candidly share their views and experiences related to IP issues. However, in general I was struck by the openness in which all attendees were willing to discuss IP matters."
