Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 4.33.37 PMLast week I went through the AFP Congress schedule of sessions and picked out my top five related to donor retention. It was a tough job. But looking through the session choices is one of my favourite parts of attending a conference.

It use to be that you had to wait until you arrived to get the full schedule. But as technology marches on we can now pick and choose our own adventure from any laptop or mobile device. If you haven’t looked through the sessions, you can click through and take a look now.

Equally important to any conference are the exhibitors. How often do you leave a session inspired to action but without a roadmap to make all your new ideas come to life?

This is where the exhibitors come in. We help you with the implementation and execution of great ideas (and quite practically, the sponsors and exhibitors help underwrite the costs of your experience at Congress so it in a nice gesture to note their presence there).

Obviously I expect everyone to pop by the Prime Data booth (#144) to say hello and learn a bit about how we help fundraisers get results. But we’re not the only exhibitors in the hall with something to offer.

Here are a few more who are worth your time and attention.
