Did We Mention the Price?
SearchFest offers the biggest names and best networking you will find at a conference but does so at a quarter of the price you would typically pay at other conferences. The cost of admission, a flight to Portland from Minnesota and two nights at a hotel will cost you what just the admission of another search conference.
