Rusty Walther will join Greg Baxter of Baxter Enterprises to welcome attendees and will then deliver the opening address, "In Search of the Holy Grail - Productive Partnerships." This keynote address will highlight the reasons why many technology partnerships fail, what drives a successful partner ecosystem, ways to maximize and leverage your supply chain, and ways to avoid the common mistakes that so often result in high hopes but poor results.

The reception and dinner on the first night will be followed by two exciting days of networking, training, and best practice education with fellow planning and forecasting experts.
