Fast times at F2009


This morning kicks off F2009, the fourth annual Business Forecasting Conference held at SAS world headquarters in Cary, NC. We are again hosting a broad mix of thought leaders, academic researchers, and industry and government practitioners. Pre-registration included 230 attendees spanning 79 commercial organizations, government agencies, and universities, from an impressive 12 countries (USA, Canada, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Germany, Portugal, Scotland, Dominican Republic, Denmark, Italy, and Finland).

Yesterday there was a pre-conference seminar on “Forecasting with Limited Data” delivered by SAS analytical consultants Pete Dillman and Nitzi Roehl. Pete and Nitzi will repeat this presentation in Copenhagen July 1-2 at the A2009 Analytics Conference.

More to come…
