Where else could you eat lunch at a conference and a 24 hour wedding chapel is a few feet away?  And thank you to the Metropolitan Las Vegas Police Department who kindly helped me find a Starbucks open so early Friday morning.  To me Las Vegas still has the best service in the United States.

You can still donate to Vegas Strong fund.



In addition to the great sessions and the ability to network and see new and old faces, was the strong support from SAP Insider in terms of AV equipment, room monitor support, and conference facilities.  Easily this conference had the best conference coffee I've had in the longest time, and the conference food was excellent.  I don't always say that.  Thank you SAP Insider and bridget.kotelly  for another great event.
