ELS12 Attendee comments
this conference, ECPA's sense of service to its membership and its
broad and strategic engagement with the issues we face brings us
something truly worthwhile and actionable in what for all stakeholders
is a season of changes, questions, and significant opportunities in the

was an excellent conference. Joe Wikert’s presentation on the evolution
of content and distribution and the ways that O’Reilly is engaging
their customers was intriguing. The Bowker research and Dr.
Jenkin’s Changes in Religious Geography was pertinent. Every single
speaker was thought provoking and gave me information that I could take
back to my organization and use. I appreciated that it went beyond the
digital discussion to talk about global opportunities and trends."

conference was fantastic. I filled pages and pages with notes and
ideas. What a strong set of presenters and the perfect blend of themes.
Our team was enriched and energized. Great job!"

of the things I most appreciate about ELS and its conference approach
is the fact that they give each speaker an hour to develop their
thoughts which provides attendees the opportunity for significant
take-away. This conference was no exception."
-- Kelly Gallager, VP, Bowker
was extremely impressed with the line up of speakers, particularly the
number that came from outside the traditional ECPA group -- always eye
opening to learn from professionals who are in the same space and facing
the same challenges, but perhaps not in the exact same way. I thought
most of the speakers did a great job of addressing the question 'why is
what I know relevant to you'. Jason Illian and Joe Wikert blew me away
-- more than what they said, the way it got me thinking about the
business and where it is going in the future."
