"What keeps me coming back to these [conferences] is the opportunity to interact with my peers, get new information about technical aspects and opportunities for career advancement, and have ideas stimulated by the panels that I can then discuss with others present. Also to see another art scene in another place. This conference accomplished all those."
Join the mailing list for the most up-to-date information.
