“The International Conference and Exposition is the premier event for people who do this work. It’s a place where we’re bringing in new ideas and we’re also hearing from established thought leaders.
Burbank, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2013
ASTD 2013 may be over, but its impact will reverberate until ASTD 2014. That’s because the International Conference and Exposition is the place where forward thinking ideas and cutting edge tools and solutions are launched, exhibited, and advanced. It’s also the training industry’s preeminent tradeshow with over 9,000 training professionals in attendance from over 80 countries.
Leigh and Marguerite Gregory, co-founders of Trainevision, the cutting edge video training startup were in attendance for this year’s Dallas based event in an unusual capacity; news gathering. “The reason we launched The Learning Show in the first place was so we could interview the movers and shakers in this dynamic industry. And we wanted to do it in an engaging and entertaining way,” said Marguerite, executive producer of the show. “That’s why we were ecstatic when Kristen agreed to an interview.”
Kristen Fyfe Mills, ASTD’s Senior Manager of Communications, is responsible for getting the organization’s year round message out to its 39,000 members and beyond. “The International Conference and Exposition is the premier event for people who do this work. It’s a place where we’re bringing in new ideas and we’re also hearing from established thought leaders. Bob Pike is doing sessions and Ken Blanchard is doing talks. And we have suppliers in the Expo Hall who are bringing the coolest most cutting edge tools to the market.”
Leigh Gregory, ASTD member and host of The Learning Show, thinks the show’s award-winning late night entertainment style is a perfect fit for the training industry. “Let’s be real. Just because we’re in corporate training doesn’t mean we’re beyond hip. Learning of any kind is cool. Cutting edge learning and development that reaches out globally to make the world better is even cooler. The International Conference and Exposition is the place on earth to celebrate that.”
At this year’s conference, the faithful were treated to an exciting array of new products, services and ideas from industry giants and thought leaders including keynote speakers, Sir Ken Robinson, John Seely Brown and Liz Wiseman.
