Congratulations to the management of the National Investor Relation Institute for an extremely well planned and executed conference. The decision to move the event from its traditional “resort hotel” locale into an urban convention center was an inspired change. (…although I am already looking forward to the Ft. Lauderdale sun in 2013)
PR Newswire, with support from our freshly minted partnership with StockTwits gave away fifteen Kindles. Cheers to our winners and thanks to the other umpteen hundreds folks that stopped by our booth to see if they won and talk about re-balancing their IR spend.
