“BIA/Kelsey conferences have continued to get better and better and with each one, more and more essential for those in the local interactive space. Boston was the best yet. In an industry where next week's news is already too old, BIA/Kelsey conferences allow a great perspective into the future of local online as well as the current landscape.”
David Haupt, Director, Local,

“Once again, unbelievable conference! I really enjoyed learning more about the YP business, and continuing to meet more of the vendors and service providers.”

or a rental car. BIA/Kelsey meetings bring together the leaders of the industry and the
people who make decisions so I can meet with them and get things done.”
