We asked a couple of “first timers” about their impressions on the conference and here are their responses:
Shruthi Musunuri: "As an engineer for an extremely busy department, the IIE Annual Conference and Expo 2013 was an excellent venue for the members and the entire industrial engineering community to meet with each other and to exchange ideas about the most current information in the field. The content the presenters provided great insight of the knowledge in other industries. The keynote speeches were very inspirational - my favorite one being Guy Primus.
I was fortunate to meet some of the most amazing professionals from within the IIE organization as well as other industries. As a speaker and a first time attendee, the conference was definitely value-added to my profession, and I would highly recommend this conference to every industrial engineer. I plan on attending this conference in the coming years. The organization was spectacular and the moreover the venue was great!"
Laurence Clements: "The location was stunning. Being on the ocean in a resort atmosphere eliminated the typical stress I get when cooped up with hundreds of people at a convention or trade show. The organization of the event was very good. There was very little hold up in the registration desk from what I could see. That’s the first place an attendee gets the flavor of the professionalism of the event. The presentation tracks were well documented and flowed well.
The networking events were very nicely set up with open bars and snacks. Seems that industrial engineers have hollow legs because the food ran out quickly at most of the events I attended. I think there was enough presented, we just can’t resist a free lunch. As a new comer, I felt a little out of place and appreciated the effort to which some of the folks at IIE went to introduce me to other attendees. Without that, I would have missed several opportunities."
