  • Learn best practices from successful projects
  • Share unforgettable experiences at exhibits and events
  • Immerse yourself in diverse cultures and develop rich relationships

If this interests you, next year's convention will be June 23-27 in Toronto, Canada, which is even closer than Atlanta.
