Recapping the 2012 Vasont Users’ Group

Posted on: October 2nd, 2012

Flew into Harrisburg, PA. on my way to the Vasont Users’ Group. One of my most favorite things about flying into this meet-up is the size of the planes going into this conference.

Hot Topics From Summit 2012

Posted on: June 8th, 2012

One of the things I like to do when I’m in the booth is ask people what they liked about Summit. I think STC does a good job putting the hot topics in front of its members and then bringing in people with good opinions about those topics. I am always surprised to see what […]

STC Summit 2012 Recap For Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Posted on: June 5th, 2012

I really like walking into the exhibition hall first thing in the morning.
