Has anyone been to the Sage Summit before? Is it worth it?

I'm weighing the costs vs benefits of attending the Sage Summit. This year it's in Chicago.

If anyone has been, I'd really appreciate an unbiased opinion centered around the value gained as an entrepreneur.:

1. Did you get to network with the keynote speaker and or the other featured speakers?
2. Were the sessions of any value?
3. What did you do or would you do differently in order to get the most out of it?
4. What was the biggest vale or benefit you got from attending?

THANKS EVERYONE
Forget about “build it and they will come.” Products without scalable distribution channels will fail to gain traction. Instead of hiring an expensive marketing team, take this course to master SEO, content marketing, retargeting, viral loops, email marketing, and sales funnel optimization.

Isabel, I've attended Sage Summit both as an exhibitor/sponsor and as a small business owner attendee years ago. It's a great networking event depending on what industry you are in. When I owned my own company where we doing lead generation for small tech companies so it was a great way to meet all the players that are adding value to the Sage ecosystem looking to grow their business. This year Sage already has 7,500+ pre registered attendees and plans on outlining their new cloud strategy for all their product lines. I guess depending upon you own business needs would determine if this would be a good show for you to attend or not. Hope that helps! Marc Sent from my iPhone

I'm currently considering the event as well.
