The conference was so beneficial that one of our team members paid for everything out of their pocket because our company said conferences aren't helpful. That person is planning on writing a letter explaining the experience and the information and knowledge gained by attending this "unexplainable" mind-blowing conference.
Just want to say again how much I appreciate Platte Canyon and this conference. It's obvious that you enjoy hosting this event and I appreciate the fact that you do it for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
The preconference hands-on workshops were the best!
Amazing food selection, good quality. Even the coffee was good, unlike most conferences.
I went for the first time last year as a new person to TB. It's hard to describe the learning atmosphere at the conference. It's not all work though. After a long, hard 8 hour day in classes, some great entertainment, food, and various liquid refreshments are available. Sometimes, the entertainment is continued in the dorm area where great renditions of Australian songs (complete with authentic accents) are presented free of charge. So, my recommendation: go to Colorado Springs this summer and be prepared for a great experience.
Most of all, TBCON is a serious, focused three days with no frills. Lots of seminars, no vendors and expositions, long winded speeches, or tons of extra-curricular activity. Therefore, the money spent on the conference and getting there goes totally to your development and nothing else. I think it's the best bargain for the money.
