Absolutely worth attending, invaluable really, for all the reasons above: find out what is new, how collections are changing, meet people involved, see some former colleagues, meet some new ones, get a bead on where this industry is heading.
—Ainsley Perry, Freelance
The ability to discuss challenges, what works, what doesn’t work, is great. I appreciate the face-to-face contact with agency reps, which to me, is critical in this business.
—Tim Fortuna, Watch Tower
I met new agencies I hadn't heard of. It's great to be able to talk face to face with the people we only work with online.
—Mars Vilaubi, Storey Publishing
