Elevate 2020 Report

Well, this year's conference was definitely different.  As a result of COVID Elevate 2020 was entirely online.  As a result, no breakfasts, lunches, evening events, happy hour, etc. so they won't be part of the review this year.

Summary

I thought it went quite well, particularly given it was Appeon's first attempt at doing an entirely online conference.

Elevate 2019 Report

Summary

The event was held at the same location as last year, except that last year it was a Sheraton and this year it's called Philadelphia Marriott Old City,  (Marriott bought out Sheraton in 2016 and has been upgrading the old Sheraton hotels since.)  The event ran from Oct 28th to 30th.  This is the third year Appeon did it themselves, and they really seem to have worked out all the kinks.  It was an excellent conference.
