“The BIA/Kelsey ILM East conference has been one of the best opportunities for learning and networking that I have had in quite some time. Being able to connect with actual decision makers has been huge for my business and I look forward to being a regular attendee in the future.”
Ray Abram, CEO, Nearbythis.com

“That was an awesome show! I've been to other conferences and this was the best conference I've ever been too. This was my first BIA/Kelsey show, so I'm planning on attending as many as I can from now on. The flow of the show was good for networking, meetings, and listening to insightful domain experts. I'm glad there were all decision makers there... talking to the right people is important.”
John Vitti, Cofounder and CMO, Mobile Spinach

“You had a wonderful, energetic crowd.”
Leslie Berland, SVP, Digital Partnerships & Development, American Express

“So many conferences are only good for networking. Yours has it all…great information, debate, data, and you always seem to be ahead of the curve. Good conferences are very difficult to plan and program. You guys know how to do it!”
