Held in San Francisco, CA, 1,100 library professionals from seventeen countries participated in over 120 presentations conducted by the attendees or jointly with Innovative staff. Their activities also included poster sessions, which are exhibits that share unique practices that IUG members have integrated with their Innovative products.

Company Presence
Innovative was a sponsor of the event and had over 90 of its staff members on-hand including members of the Executive Team, Product and Market Management, Services & Support, and the new Library Relations Management group. Innovative staff demonstrated products and presented on the latest developments in products such as the Sierra Services Platform, Decision Center, Encore Synergy, and more. Several of these presentations took the form of co-presentations with Innovative customers. Innovative also posted a new "We're Listening" Wall to solicit written ideas and comments from the attendees.

Said CEO Kim Massana: "This was my first IUG Conference and I was amazed by the intensity, interest, and energy displayed by participants who'd traveled from all over the world to be part of it. The commitment to Innovative products that I observed very clearly reminded me of the responsibility that all of us at Innovative have taken on to deliver the best products in library technology today to our customers." Also during the Conference, Massana discussed on his blog the new and continuing partnerships with OverDrive and EBSCO for eBook integration and EBSCO Discovery Services content integration respectively.

Opening Session
The Opening Session began with a warm welcome by IUG Chair Christine Rigda, Systems Librarian at the University of Toledo (OH), followed by the keynote address by Futurist Garry Golden. Innovative CEO Kim Massana's presentation highlighted the successes of Sierra in locations such as New York, San Francisco, and Sydney (Australia). He also emphasized the company's presence internationally and presented the Innovative Employee Welcome Video "starring" Innovative staff speaking a variety of languages. Massana also expanded on the new era at Innovative of openness, collaboration, and customer engagement.
