Reflecting on ATP Innovations in Testing 2016

As one walks through the hotel halls to the exhibit hall and sessions there is a satisfying sense of camaraderie. Among the many assessment industry professionals — all intertwined between colleagues, clients, mentors, business partners and friends — the overall motivation and satisfaction is knowledge and success.

ATP plans a well-run conference bringing together experts in the practice areas of Certification & Licensure, Clinical, Educational, Industrial/Organizational and Workforce Skills Credentialing. Although the setting is always sunny, warm and the pool looks inviting, sessions are filled and the exhibit hall is never empty. Attendees are focused on growth and development — happily learning the newest technologies and trends to better their organizations.

For Strasz, it is an opportunity to mingle with our current clients, lend detail to potential business deals, learn from other industry experts, and showcase our strengths as an exhibitor. This conference remains a priority each year as it is directly engages the best the industry has to offer.

We are eager for the 2016 follow-ups and look forward to seeing everyone in Phoenix in 2017!
