    The door situation was a little absurd and mismanaged, but the event itself was interesting.

    Never made it past the entrance, not because it was too crowded, but because there was only one person at the door neurotically checking for ID's to a group that he was unable to handle.

    Our team arrived late so we missed out on the Demos, but the Leadership Team definitely made us feel welcome! We appreciated meeting a few of the presenters as well as Solomon and Chhay.

    I think the sponsors and presenters would be better served if we had more information on them before getting to the meet up or some handouts material at the door.
