Vendor Conferences Continue to Evolve in 2006 Vendor conferences aren’t what they used to be, and for credit unions that’s a good thing. Gone are the days of vendor conferences being used solely to sell credit unions products and services. Today’s conferences feature industry experts to give credit union attendees broader perspectives on key issues. Exhibit halls, once the sole domain of association events, are now cropping up at vendor conferences. So if you haven’t been to a vendor conference in a few years and are expecting the same old thing, think again. Use the listing here to plan your 2006 conference schedule.
