If you missed the ATD 2019 International Convention and Exposition, you will want to connect to this webcast. If you attended, you might want to connect for another perspective. There were three outstanding Keynotes and over 300 concurrent sessions to choose from. This recap is a summary of some of the sessions and overall questions being answered by the presenters, and the expo exhibitors. There were 13,500+ attendees from both inside and outside the US, each coming with different needs and objectives. We talked to many of them, interviewed some of them, and attended sessions throughout the 4 days.

Given the various needs of the attendees, in this webcast learn:

* What were the themes that surfaced from ATD ICE 2019
* The messages from each of the three keynotes, and how did they tie together for us as learning professionals
* Some of the trends in learning that surfaced from the presenters at the conference and what trends did we see in the expo  hall from the exhibitors
