MVC 2015 core audience increases over prior years

Another successful Conference is in the OVMA record books! Popular events—including MVC Zumba, Connection Corner and Exhibit Hall Fast Cash—were back, accompanied by new features like the Recent Grad Town Hall Reception. Although overall numbers this year saw a slight drop over MVC 2014 (no doubt due to inclement weather on Saturday), technician attendance jumped nearly 6 percent, helping to increase the core attendance to the highest number of the past five years.
