Twitter's Last Blast at ISM2016
The ISM2016 Annual Conference in Indianapolis concluded with a half-day of activity on Wednesday, but participants showed an eagerness to finish strong — both onsite and on social media. The #ISM2016 hashtag received plenty of use as presenters, exhibitors and attendees shared thoughts from the Conference's last sessions and said farewell until next year.
Speaking of next year, can you imagine the variety of tweets #ISM2017 will provide from Orlando? There will be photos from sessions, the Exhibit Hall — and hopefully, Conference participants smiling (or screaming) on rides at nearby Walt Disney World. Don't forget to pack those selfie sticks, folks!
The keynote session on Wednesday featured former U.S. Trade Representative Susan Schwab and the ISM® Report on Business® team discussing trade policy (particularly the Trans-Pacific Partnership) and the economic forecast for the remainder of 2016.

As Wednesday's activities began, attendees were wise to not have their minds on the trip home just yet, as there was lots of information to absorb in the morning sessions.
