The Annual AIIP conference is a must attend event for me. As a conference promoter, speaker and popular track and session panelist, I never get a chance to just sit and learn from my own colleagues. Yet, I block out the dates of the AIIP conference every year, because I know I will gain new sources to try, technology upgrades to implement and fabulous memories from longtime friends and like-minded professionals. I make a rule to never take the swag or conference brochures at the other events I attend, because I only end up recycling the whole lot. But AIIP handouts and tip sheets are worth the extra luggage fees, because they get me inspired, help me organize or make me money!
