I had such a great time at my first ever PACnet! My favorite sessions were the keynote speakers, and my second favorite thing about the conference was meeting the people I'll be working with in the future. I also loved the leadership from the Paciolan leadership - you could tell they LISTEN!

I appreciate ability to network, share ideas, and obtain information not only from colleagues but from vendor partners and Paciolan personnel. There were so many useful breakout sessions that I had to choose between them!

At PACnet, I enjoy hearing creative ideas from colleagues that sparked some patron engagement ideas.

Hearing from industry peers that are in similar situations and using products/services that we have access to as well - it was encouraging to see the success we could also have.

The ability to network face to face with colleagues and Paciolan specialists to me is the most important aspect of the conference.

I really like having faces to go with names from Paciolan. I very much enjoyed the breakout sessions and discussions. I enjoyed each keynote speaker and found them very knowledgeable, authentic and engaging.

The breakout sessions are great to engage with those that are dealing with the same success/problems that you might be encountering. Also, the presenters aren't all from the same line of work, so it is great to hear the different perspectives.

Networking and gathering ideas were the two things I'd hope I'd take away from PACnet and I feel I was able to do both. Where else can we all gather for 3-4 days and focus on nothing but meeting our college athletics colleagues from all over the US, sharing our ideas and building working relationships? Great opportunity.

I enjoyed how interactive most of the sessions, many of the panelists were generous with the information they shared and had great insight into so many areas of the system.

I'm very excited for the new PAC platform and what's coming in the future. The speakers were prepared and insightful.

I think the topics of each breakout session are well chosen. I can tell that Paciolan works with their clients and partners to discuss what is being done in our industry and makes sure that they build sessions that are valuable and informative to conference attendees

The conference was well organized and offered invaluable information. It was great to hear from professionals outside of the world of college athletics.

Despite the record size of this year's conference, Paciolan was still able to make the conference about family and helping each other achieve success through great content and social events. There is an ability to share ideas and thoughts with colleagues – a real opportunity to meet someone who does your job somewhere else and talk for real about the success and challenges each person faces.

I enjoyed networking and getting new ideas to bring back to our company. The "How to's" and the roadmap were valuable information for us and the focus on the fan experience this year brought us many cool ideas to offer to our fans.

What did I dislike about the breakout sessions? That I could not attend more.
