Rain could not dampen the spirits of nearly 1,700 enthusiastic IISE Annual Conference and Expo attendees, exhibitors, presenters and IISE members and leaders amassed inside the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando in Florida this May. Participants zipped from educational sessions to trade show to town hall meetings to awards presentations, soaking in the robust professional opportunities and connections the conference had to offer. Many took to social media to share their experiences. Some of those tweets and posts are captured here for your entertainment. Feel free to peruse more social chatter on various IISE social networking sites. Conference photo albums are available at
