Maximize your companies training dollars

Companies only have so much money to spend on training. Attending the big national conferences is a very expensive proposition. Generally registration alone is several thousand dollars and once you add airfare, lodging, and other costs in order to travel to the West Coast, you are looking at $4,000 to $5,000. For the cost to send one person one of these conferences, they could send between 13 and 16 employees. But attending Code PaLOUsa 2018 doesn't mean you have to receive second rate training.

    • Exhibit Hall:
      Meeting with potential vendors can lay the ground work in identifying prospective partnerships. There will be competing vendors, so you can easily compare different organizations within one space.
