All A-Twitter at ISM2016
The ISM2016 Annual Conference in Indianapolis began in full swing on Monday, and while the Exhibit Hall and Conference sessions were the epicenter of bustle, Twitter tried its best to keep up. There was plenty of activity involving the #ISM2016 hashtag as Conference presenters, exhibitors and attendees shared their experiences.
We'll pass along the best of ISM2016 Twitter through Wednesday. Among Monday's highlights:
Expectations were high for keynote speaker Alan Mulally going into the Conference, and the former Ford Motor Company president and CEO pleased his audience with an informative and inspiring address.

Indianapolis is a good place to find hot rides, especially with the world's most famous auto race just two weeks away. The "Cruise and Connect" GM Car Show featured lots of horsepower.

The Exhibit Hall was busy. We noticed Sparty, Michigan State University's athletics mascot, in the background and would have loved to hear his supply management wisdom.

Mr. Ferrell says to create a plan even if you don't know what you want to do. It will provide clarity. #ISM2016— SA Procurement (@sa_procurement) May 16, 2016
93% of the presentation is forgotten 7 min post session. Best thing I learned @ #ISM2016— AValente (@AllaValente) May 16, 2016
And finally, at ISM2016, we like to think everyone's a winner.
