Each morning the Xpo started with introductory talks by the optionsXpress management team followed by a guest speaker. On Thursday, May 4th the guests were David and Tom Gardner from the Motley Fool and on Friday, May 5th the guest was Ben Stein. The afternoons were dominated by the breakout session talks, which were available in 10 rooms from 1 to 5 PM. Most shows of this type clear out rapidly after the last breakout. However, optionsXpress sponsored a cocktail hour and a salmon and steak dinner as part of their closing ceremony. The Xpo was well attended and a good time was shared by all.
A special thanks to all of our loyal customers who came out and met us. It is always nice to put a face with the name in the internet business.
