This is one of only two shows that has a lot of decision makers present. DevLearn Conference & Expo. Another show presented by eLearning Guild. I was a keynote presenter in 2012 and really liked the event. What I did not like and I heard this from attendees as well, was that each vendor was able to present within the event.
