I could not have been prouder or more happy with how the first annual PFRE Conference turned out. From beginning to end, it had the feel of an event that had been going on for years. The feedback that we've received on all aspects of the conference--from our selection of Las Vegas, to the cream of the crop speakers, to the showroom venue, to the entertainment at the party event on the first night, right through to the panel discussion to close out the event--was over-the-moon-positive!

Our good friends at Shooting Spaces, Rich Baum and Brian Berkowitz, have pulled together a terrific podcast regarding their first-hand experiences of attending and participating in the event. For those of you who attended the event, I think it will prompt you to reflect on both your own experience, as well as the nuggets we hope you took home from the event. For those of you who weren't able to attend, I hope you'll listen and get a sense of how great the event was, and I hope it'll inspire you to attend next year!

I'm sure there'll be a few more posts on the conference in the near future, so please stay tuned!

  1. I couldn't agree more Brandon! It did have the feeling of a "mature" conference and I got a lot of valuable information during the event. The "showroom" venue was a bit unique, but it seemed to work pretty well, especially for the social activities. And the band at the party was amazing - top notch entertainment. Thanks to you, Tony, and all the people who put it together!
    I spent 25 years managing an international conference here in southern California for a world leading software company, so I know what it takes to put on a successful conference. You folks should be proud of your accomplishment. And if you need some assistance with the 2020 conference, let me know. I would love to help!
    Best regards,

  2. Brandon, agree with just about everything Rich and Brian commented on. It was probably the best event I’ve ever attended in terms of the practical information I came away with in terms of my business, the party was great, the giveaways, the camaraderie. Kudos to all who were involved in the planning, the speakers, the vendors, etc. Just overall a great event, except: the one thing I and a number of others I spoke with were annoyed about for the entire couple of days was the cigarette smoke that was everywhere in the casino and lobby. It penetrated the showroom and the restaurants as well. I understand it’s a casino, with smoking and drinking a part of the experience, but as exciting as the venue was, the smoke was a huge downer. I don’t know if others were equally affected by it, but on the east coast, there is rarely a public place where people can smoke, so it was a bit of a shock to have to breathe smoke for two days. Fortunately, my hotel room was not affected. I hope when you and your planning team debrief on this year’s conference, they take this into consideration when choosing the venue for the next PFRE Conference.
