Given that this was the first conference that Appeon had hosted, I thought it went extremely well. There were a few areas for improvement, which I'll address at the end of this article. Attendance was good and diverse. It seemed like there were a significant number of people attending from outside of the United States. (Appeon later indicated that 24% of the attendees were from outside North America, 4% from Asia, and 10% each from Europe and Latin America). There was a lot of energy and excitement on the attendees part, and the sessions overall appeared to have been high quality and well attended. The facilities were great, if a bit small, and the services provided by Appeon to facilitate travel between the downtown hotels and the conference location were a great touch. If you didn't attend this year I would highly recommend it next year, particularly given we should have some exciting new 2018 features to see next year.
