Recent attendees have said:

"Great conference for folks to learn and hear about KM basics and also next-gen KM (novice as well as seasoned KM folks) I have 20 years of experience in knowledge management, and I always learn something new at KMWorld."

"I would absolutely recommend this show. This was my first time attending and I had such a valuable experience. I took tons of notes, I learned a great deal, and I met so many wonderful people. I was especially grateful that the experts and show veterans were so welcoming to newcomers like me. Sometimes when attending professional conferences I have found that there is an insider group that only talks to each other. At KMWorld, I found everyone to be generous with their time and expertise. That is magical!"
