The 59th Annual ATSI Convention and Expo was held June 18 to 21 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida. Though the weather outside wasn’t ideal, the sessions and tradeshow inside were well worth the trip. The 2003 Award of Excellence winners were announced and Connections conducted its second annual Innovation Awards.
Next year’s ATSI convention will be in Vancouver, BC. Final details should be announced later this summer.
