Words like “impressive,” “interesting,” “informative,” “interactive,” and “insightful” echoed in the halls. Many conference participants brought their own energy and expertise in the form of well-thought-out questions and valuable experience using Church technology in many ways.

There were about 500 attendees, 29 formal presentations that were approved and available, and demos by App & Game Contest winners. Great ideas were all around. Church employees and many volunteers were on hand to answer questions and direct participants around the conference venue.
