Innovation for a Strong Economy
22nd International Conference on Business Incubation took place May
4-7 in San Antonio, Texas. With more than 60 educational sessions, roundtable
discussions and forums, the program covered a variety of incubation-related
topics ranging from viral marketing to tracking economic impact. Participants
had opportunities to gather new tools and learn from colleagues.
The conference headquarters hotel, the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, was on the River Walk, offering attendees easy access to shops and some of the famous restaurants of San Antonio. After days filled with intensive training, there was time in the evening to explore all this grand Texas city had to offer.
We hope the conference was a worthwhile experience for all who attended. NBIA staff enjoyed meeting everyone, and we thank the speakers, sponsors, board members and others who made this event a success!
