The Buzz About ILM

Attendees describe their experiences at BIA/Kelsey’s ILM West and East.

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

“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

“As a first-time attendee of a BIA/Kelsey conference, I was absolutely thrilled with the utility of the event for our business purposes. We were able to meet numerous relevant contacts with great potential for new business, and were able to do so in a comfortable, professional environment with accommodating staff, delicious food and beverage, and first-rate care for our needs as an exhibitor. I would recommend that anyone who wants to meet top-notch professionals and learn more about the cutting-edge in directory-related business, media, and information technology put these events on their calendar.”
—Roger Casey, Manager, Business Development, WillowTree Apps

“As always, you guys put on an absolutely GREAT show and once again it was my favorite one of the year. Like the previous several years, my brain was just trying to catch up on things today – so much stimulation...and of course some late-night networking!”
—David Mihm, Local Search Expert, David Mihm, Inc.

“I thought the show was great. I was impressed with the amount of networking – and entrepreneurs mixing and matching themselves – that went on; that’s something I haven’t seen as much during past conferences. The data was good and I love that you make all of the PowerPoint decks available too.”
—Drew Kondylas, Independent Consultant

“Each time I had a spare moment someone else would find me that would produce a great meeting.”
— Edward Panian, Co-President,

“I've been to a bunch of conferences over the past couple of years and this was the most worthwhile for us as a player in the local space - very targeted, great speakers, etc.
—Michael Tavani, Cofounder, ScoutMob

“ILM does a great job of bringing together the leading decision makers to discuss the pertinent topics shaping the local media space. BIA/Kelsey conferences find the right balance of content sessions and networking. I always learn quite a bit when I attend the ILM conferences.”
—Steve Sanger, VP, Business Development, GrubHub

“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!”
— Jere Doyle, Founder, President and CEO, Prospectiv

“The show was great—I enjoyed many of the presentations and a chance to hook up/connect with folks in the broader industry. My only concern is that more companies like mine are going to discover you all.”
—Randy Wootton, SVP, Sales, Service, and Marketing, AdReady, Inc.
