IAPA Event Round Up: December 2018

2018 has been quite a busy and eventful year for IAPA! 

We’ve worked hard to provide our members with networking opportunities and valuable data and analytics insights from the best in the industry at our annual Advancing Analytics conference.

In addition, we also took a moment in time to celebrate the best leaders the data and analytics industry has to offer with our Top 25 Analytics Leaders event.

And in the later part of this year, IAPA Managing Director Annette Slunjski was invited to speak at a suite of reputable data-led events where she had the privilege of sharing her breadth of knowledge and expertise relating to data and analytics and its current landscape.

Here are some of the highlights from 2018...
