Here's what people are saying about PAW:

“Predictive Analytics World was probably the best analytics conference I have attended, from a knowledge point of view, in a long time...[and] turned into my new must-go-to conference.”

    Dennis R. Mortensen
    Director of Data Insights

    As stated on his blog

“Despite limited modeling experience, I was able to draw parallels between speakers in various industries and the types of analysis we do at uShip. Everyone seemed excited to be attending despite the economy. We left San Francisco with a long list of actionable items — can't wait to see what's on tap for next year!”

    Michael C. Foroobar
    Sr. Associate – Strategy, Reporting, and Analytics

“PAW is actionable!”

    100% of attendees responding to the inaugural conference survey indicated the knowledge they gained at Predictive Analytics World is actionable.

Cross-Industry Applications

Predictive Analytics World is the only conference of its kind, delivering vendor-neutral sessions across verticals such as banking, financial services, e-commerce, entertainment, government, healthcare, high technology, insurance, non-profits, publishing, and retail.

And PAW covers the gamut of commercial applications of predictive analytics, including response modeling, customer retention with churn modeling, product recommendations, online marketing optimization, behavior-based advertising, email targeting, insurance pricing and credit scoring.

Why bring together such a wide range of endeavors? No matter how you use predictive analytics, the story is the same: Predictively scoring customers optimizes business performance. Predictive analytics initiatives across industries leverage the same core predictive modeling technology, share similar project overhead and data requirements, and face common process challenges and analytical hurdles.
