Road Trip! ATD 2016

Posted by Brett Smith on Thu, Apr 28, 2016

SwissVBS is happy to announce that we will be at the ATD 2016 International Conference & Exposition in Denver from May 22nd to May 25th. After 15 years of attending trade shows and business events, we have decided to pack our most precious ideas and head out west to share our wealth of Learning and Development knowledge with the great state of Colorado (home of the "other Rockies").

We will be at booth #648 in the main exhibition center, close to where lunch is served. If you plan on attending the conference, please stop by and say hello.
