“Our success with last year’s inaugural MSO Symposium generated tremendous enthusiasm and interest among MSOs in the U.S. and Canada," said symposium facilitator and co-producer Matthew Ohrnstein, Symphony Advisors.

We’re especially pleased to be able to tailor this year’s content to respond to specific feedback from last year’s attendees.”

Added ASA President Ron Pyle, "The MSO Symposium was one of the most anticipated events of 2011, and this year’s event is on pace to exceed our expectations once again. The overwhelming response and support by the sponsors of this event have truly shaped it, and we’re grateful to each of the sponsoring companies who have played a critical role in this year’s symposium.”
