The conference will feature two keynote speakers and 36 breakout sessions along with more than 70 trade show vendors. Attendees will also enjoy snacks and meals prepared with organic and locally grown foods specially sourced from Minnesota and neighboring states.

It’s a great networking opportunity for even first time attendees to feel right at home.
