The San Diego Pricing Conference Recap #PPSSD17

An incredible time was had in San Diego during the 28th Annual Fall Pricing Workshops and Conference event! The standard two full-day Workshop series was an exciting time in pricing education, many first-time attendees raved about the lineup. Attendees filled Conference rooms throughout the day for interactive learning and were eligible to take a Workshop quiz that if passed will count towards a CPP Designation Credit. While there was no Workshop Reception this year, attendees soaked up the sights, tastes, and delights of San Diego and the Bayfront area! The perfect weather made for a great backdrop to socialize and explore the offerings of the city. We opened our Pricing Conference with amazing Keynote Speeches from pricing leaders at Fortune 500 companies including Laura Preslan of Microsoft (Paypal) Nancy Lucas (Cargill) The Sponsor Hall was busy for several days allowing attendees to mingle and interact with the leading vendors in the industry. The Giveaways weren't too bad either... attendees left with new iPads, Apple Watches, Amazon Gift cards and more!

There were a few new initiatives launched during the Fall Conference as well. We held the first gathering of INFUSION: a pricing initiative committed to supporting diversity and inclusion for women & minorities in the pricing industry.

A featured luncheon with a panel discussion was organized by executives and Infusion Group Leaders Nolwenn Godard (Paypal), Hillary Gretton (BD) and Susana Lopez (Medtronic). Attendees were engaged and open, sharing their professional experiences and personal hurdles. The event was a great success!

The pricing experts spoke to specific strategy questions in (four) areas: Digital Transformation, The Role of Senior Executives, and Building Resources In Pricing.
