Just wanted to reach out and let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed the symposium and were amazed at the amount of knowledge we received.  My wife and I traveled down from northern West Virginia and it was worth every minute of the drive.  Being able to hear all the amazing speakers and be able to meet so many great folks, either in the industry or just getting started, was very beneficial.
