Several ESC Boston tracks are dead on with articles that youve been scarfing up on the site. Not only do you have a chance to take them in right there, in person, but you also have a chance to network with your peers, graze the exhibit floor for one-on-one discussions, show deals, and even a bit of fun.

Although I always thought they were valuable, I think theres more recently a measurable uptick in the quality of booth conversation as it applies to really solving your challenge, or introducing you to a better mousetrap or method.
