If you have to end your thread title with an [color=#ff0000][b]elypsis[/b][/color] in order to draw up some intrigue so people click on it, you should take that as an indicator that the thread is not worth starting.

It's an industry conference. The teams with the best analytics and metrics have developed their own models and databases. Gettlemen could probably lead the conference.

If you have truly great information you don't hold an open conference you sell proprietary stuff for huge dollars.
