Totally Empowering!

Pros: Jam packed content, great vendors/exhibitors, outstanding and insightful keynotes

Cons: Very large event (11,000 attendees), long lines, strict security and metal detectors, food not great, standing room only

This large event is the largest of its kind in the United States. Held at the Boston Convention Center, it brings thousands of women from the greater Boston area. We came from Western Connecticut and were very pleased with the attendance levels, especially the women-owned businesses that were exhibiting in the expo hall. The Wednesday night keynotes should have been held in a larger area--or should have had jumbotrons scattered around the large expo space (where there was available room and nice seating areas), because the audio for the keynotes from Gloria Steinem and Bethenny Frankel was set too low. Many of us in the back missed the meat of their talks because we couldn't hear. The breakout sessions were very good. But the highlight of the day on Thursday was the lunch opening keynote from Viola Davis. She was absolutely outstanding. To hear her story made all of us realize how lucky we are to have not had to live any similar hardships. She is the epitome of "bootstrapped" success, and I'll forever watch her movies because she's so deserving of the praise after all she had to overcome in life. Diane Von Furstenberg was a hoot and a half. She wore it all on her sleeve as she discussed her humble beginnings, got a little lost in her powerpoint presentation, and then rallied back with humor and hutzpah. I love her. Then of course the icing on the cake was Meryl Streep with Gloria Steinem. These women chatted as if they were sitting in their living room sharing coffee. Meryl is so down-to-earth she's another one who I respect even more after seeing her speak so truthfully and transparently about the movie business. Gloria was able to keep her feeling comfortable and kept the two of them laughing. I think the entire audience would have stuck around for another hour had they decided to prolong the keynote. I'm proud to be a woman, and I'm proud I was able to experience the stories of these other fabulous women. Can't wait to do it again next year.

What would you like to see repeated in a future event? The big keynotes are unbelievable. Keep them coming!

What can the event do without? The food had a lot to be desired. The conference should take notes from the PCMA and figure out how to feed 11,000 on something other than cold rubbery chicken and tasteless quinoa salad.
