"I think the biggest highlight of the ATD conference is basically the exposure, the world class content that we can potentially get from the whole event from the service and the programs that are being offered. I think it is really a one stop event for any learning and development professionals. If you only have one chance in a year to attend a L&D event this is one that you will definitely want to go to."
