The was my first PLRB conference and I look forward to attending others.

Great learning opportunity, good way to clarify how vendors can help or what they do.

I was able to meet several contractors and adjusters face to face that I've only talked to on the phone in the past. Everything is well organized and I appreciate that.

The variety of presentations compared to the amount of time allotted for the conference. It was nice getting to choose courses and not feeling like I had to settle for one which didn't apply. All were valuable.

Material appropriate for what we do. Variety of subject matter and choices.

The seminars very done very well and was pleased with overall experience.
