Conference overwhelming

Overwhelming, that's what this conference is. There are almost
  • too many people - over 8000
  • too many meetings - over 200
  • too much choice of fantastic professional development workshops - more than 300
No wonder new comers feel overwhelmed at this conference. People have come from all over the world, from 79 different countries, and only half of them from the USA, so this AOM conference does have an international feel.

Some great options. Yesterday I was trying to get into an overfull session on maps and other alternative visual representations but somehow got mixed up in the wrong group and found I was doing the tango for leadership. That was great, but the potential to miss so much causes frustration.
