From Past Spring Tech Event Attendees:

"I found the Spring Tech 2019 to be a great and informative experience.   I was able to network and meet some key technical people with many of our current sources/vendors. It is always great to get back into the plants to see the actually processes in action.  The host, PAI, made the experience very educational and informative from compound selection to finished product."

"I wasn't sure if coming to the Tech event a second year in a row would be worth it, but I learned as much this year as I did last year.  It just keeps getting better.” 
“I had to say there were many of the subjects presented that I knew much of the subject matter on.  However, it was presented it such a concise and clear manner that I really want to take the same presentations and share with the rest of our staff.”
“Great event and great presenters with still plenty of time for networking, excellent!”
