It is a welcome sign

German translation:Willkommen zur "Meilen Voraus" jährlichen Frühjahrskonferenz
Explanation:
I guess the key here is the translation of "streets ahead" and the only sensible one here seems to me "Meilen voraus". Of course, the whole thing sounds somewhat funny in German, I would probably regroup it to:

Willkommen zur jährlichen Frühjahrskonferenz von "Meilen Voraus"

you can drop the \"von\", if it\'s more sutiable
