Some of the presentations were hilariously funny, some were thought-provoking, some were downright fascinating. As this was my first ICCC, I knew a few people and enjoyed meeting many, many more. I ran out of business cards. I met four other attorneys there, and saw but did not get to meet two others. We attorneys should have our own beer and bull session at the next ICCC.
It truly was international in attendees, with (as I recall) people from Australia, Canada, Germany, UK, Sweden, Russia, New Zealand, and the USA. There may have been other countries represented, too.
