If you’re able to attend one of the below conferences in the coming months, be sure to make the most of your conference networking, and track your ROI to gauge whether the event is worth a repeat visit next time around:

July 7-9 – AM&AA Summer Conference, Chicago, IL
More than 500 dealmakers from across the globe will be attending AM&AA’s annual summer conference in Chicago.
