I have to agree with Lex's previous posting.  I think this was one of the
best overall conferences we have had in several years.  My main points:

1.  I don't recall this level of "upbeat-ness" across the board (Infor
associates, vendors, and affiliates) in some time.
2.  Expo was one of the best I can recall.
3.  Excellent sessions, good variety and spread between Syteline,
MAPICS/XA, and general interest (IBM's "iSeries as your future platform"
was terrific).
4.  Stuff all seemed to happen on time - impressive considering the huge
turnout.

Downsides:
1.  Main tent was a little too long (2 1/2 hrs!)
2.  Session scheduling seemed a little skewed - for example the 9:15am
Tuesday session had 7 sessions I was interested in, with only one repeated.
(And to make it worse, I was presenting then also!)  In their defense,
however, I don't know how to do any better......  Perhaps a better
pre-registration might have helped?  Although I do know that historically
that isn't really accurate.  Sort of like the oxymoron "accurate
forecasting".....
3.  Why weren't we given a "session description" booklet this year?  Just a
time table.

The conference was VERY well worth the time and money.  I'm looking forward
to the upcoming year.....
