Although Amiee Keenan, Partner Marketing Manager of Avalara, will be joining us at PreImagine for the first time this year, she was happy to shed some helpful knowledge she gained from attending other conferences and what she is looking forward to this Sunday:

Why did Avalara decide to sponsor PreImagine this year?

This is a great show. It is a great way to kick-start the conference.

What are you looking forward to most this year?

Personally, this is my first year at Imagine so I look forward to learning, networking, and being in the booth.

Do you have any advice for first time attendees?

I have attended many conferences. There is a lot of walking so good, comfortable shoes are the key to get you through.
