For the first time in 5 years, the IMPACT conference has exceeded our maximum allotted capacity, has SOLD OUT and now hosting a waiting list for new, registered guests. The momentum building for IMPACT14 is infectious and felt like a shockwave throughout the marketplace and Las Vegas as validated by the response of our partners.
Some fun highlights coming up for IMPACT14:
– Google Inc. will be showcasing cutting edge technology and developments around mobile, social, retail and electronic payment innovations
