I attended the ISC West tradeshow this year for the first time. I am also a millennial and felt like this was a very beneficial show for me. I am a hands-on person so it was great to be able to visit so many booths and put my eyes on the new products and to also speak with the subject matter experts that were there.

Great show and did not feel repetitive as it has felt the last few years. The Analytics and Deep Learning is going to go nuts in the next number of years. Minority Report, here we come :)
