Each year, in May, the Association for Talent Development hosts the International Conference and Exposition. Travelling between six major cities and their huge conferences centers it’s a learning happening without peer. ICE is huge and overwhelming and dauntingly so if you’re a freshman attendee.


Some facts and figures: 9.800 attendees, 2.200 from WOUSA (World Outside USA), four days, three keynotes, 14 concurrent sessions with about 27 sessions in parallel to choose from in 9 different tracks. Mind you: this is only the conference side of the equation, the exposition showcases many learning institutions and software solutions: with all of the blitz, pomp and glitter of a world fair.

To help you all approach the ICE I’ve created a video field guide to help you approach this feast of learning. Let’s share the power of knowledge!
