Carol & I are just back from the NYWDMA seminar held in Owego, NY and I have to tell you we had a wonderful time !! This is perhaps the 5th NY show we've attended and I've got to tell you these guys work hard all year long to put on a quality seminar. This year was a couple of "firsts" for them.
1. They changed locations this year, for the past several years it had been held up at Carrier Circle near Syracuse. This year, in an attempt to attract some more "downstate" folks they moved the venue to Owego, NY, which is about 10 miles west of Binghamton. The location was right on the Susquehanna River, held at a Treadway Inn, the accomodations and hospitality were wonderful.
2. They changed their seminar format to a 2 day conference and were able to offer to full days of course instruction, after-hours roundtable, and plenty of time for the attendees to visit the vendor displays.
The NYWDMA is run by top-notch professionals and they work hard to put on a high quality conference. If you haven't had the chance to attend this show in the past you should give it serious consideration for the future. The information exchanged both formally and informally after-hours is most certainly going to improved even the most seasoned professionals business.
Carol & I are hoping they hold the '07 conference in Owego, great location & accomodations, lots of great people, and a quality course offering are certain to attract a great crowd !! Hope to see you there !!
