KOOL should have been there....no reason to cut corners on things like this.
They probably weren't there for the same reason you weren't...not invited.That "summit" could be a joke anyhow (I don't know either way, but a lot of them are from an investment, biz dev, or marketing standpoint).
Don't know if they are there but I remember that he said something about cord blood bank conference of some kind in New York...
d, You are right. Most association conferences only benefit the people that put them on. No real shareholder value. The stem community knows who doing what and how good. Good observation.
Mathew at last CC indicated that they are attending and even sponsering several very important events, I know one in New York and at least one in Europe.
