What the attendees are saying:

“It was great to attend the recent AIM Conference in Chicago. In addition to the great speakers, the networking opportunity was outstanding as usual. This year, I can actually report that our company received an order from a new customer within 6 weeks of attending the conference as a direct result of networking. We expect that this new customer will continue to offer us opportunities and that a long-term relationship will follow. Once again, networking with industry leaders and members of AMT pays off.”
