“If you have not looked at attending the Paraben Forensic Innovation Conference you should. The event has great talks and lots of hands-on lab tracks. Even though the conference is called Paraben, there are a lot of other forensic companies there. And, you can talk to lots of real users. Unlike other conferences that cost thousands, this conference is affordable for any budget. Bonus: It's in Park City UT. I plan to be there every year!"
