According to Joel Friedman, HDIA Executive Director,  “We’ve analyzed our attendee demographics, especially with regard to product-line interests, and fine-tuned the conference agenda to focus the program even more than before on the needs of those actually attending."

Also, additional interactive learning and discussion opportunities are now available, as lunches and dinners on Monday and Tuesday, November 10-11 are being  turned into working sessions. There will be no changes in keynotes or other general session activities.
