Connect. Engage. Enjoy.

You work hard so you have to play hard too right?

At the end of the first day you'll have a chance to enjoy a few drinks on us at our networking event. This is the perfect time to get the presenters attention and ask them a few questions by buying them a drink (on us of course!)

Reconnect with old friends and meet a few new ones. It's the perfect way to cap off your first day of learning.

There are tons of great nuggets of info and connections made at our networking party every year. Many of which just as valuable, if not more, than the info you learn during the presentations.
