Really great conference. Your team never ceases to amaze me with the talent you gather. I want to congratulate you on running an outstanding program. So many of the comments I heard outside were very positive, and I didn't hear ANY negative comments. —Dick Larkin, Weblistic

I thought it was great ... meaning both the content, which I found fascinating, and the networking, which was productive. —Tom Bullock, AlmondNet

Nice job! Hell of a conference. You rock. —Ben Saren, CitySquares

I had a terrific time at the conference and truly appreciate being part of the festivities. I thought the conference as a whole was great, very informative and good tracks for both industry veterans as well as media execs just trying to understand the underlying dynamics of the medium. —Josh Wetzel,

We were flooded with business opportunities, both on the media side and the agency side. This felt like an Internet conference in 1996 — right before the whole market crystallized and became huge. —Ethan Stock, Zvents

The combination of networking opportunities and helpful information from speakers and panel members during the ILM Conference made it well worth the trip. When DMM Inc. plans scheduling for important business events, the conferences hosted by The Kelsey Group are always at the top of our list. —Bob Kennedy, Denver MultiMedia Inc.

You did an excellent job bringing in all the key players in the space and we learned so much. —Constantin S. Manta, YellowSpaces

Had a great time. I learned a lot, and met some great folks too. —Mel Taylor, Local Media in a Web 2.0 World

Going to a conference like ILM is daunting. You find out that there are so many smart people out there who have the nerve and bravado to change the world. It was a pleasure to hear them speak, whether they were on stage or someone you encountered during a break. —Mike Dobson, Telemapics

I thought the show was awesome. And you all look good in ties. —Dave Galvan, Topix

Congratulations and thank you for an awesome conference. Really, I think this event was your best ever. The speaker lineup was great and the attendee list was EVERYONE involved in the local Internet. I got so much business done in those three days that I was very disappointed that the event had to end. Now I can’t wait for the next Kelsey event. —Kendall Fargo, Intuit

You guys put on a fantastic show – great networking, informative, and fun! —David Schwartz, Yahoo! Autos
