  • Great article, Kate! I attended this year as an operator and as an investor. As an operator, I attended the conference looking for relationships that will positively affect our business, but as an investor, I went to gain awareness of as many companies as possible and educate myself on industry trends as much — if not more so — than the companies driving those trends.
