One of the best things about going to a conference is meeting and networking with new people. In addition to the professional networking opportunities of the conference, we offering more informal meet-ups where everyone can get together with their fellow travelers and share a drink, trade stories, tips, and meet people with similar interests!
Below are the niche/topic meet-ups. To attend, just find the niche that suits you and click “sign-up”. There’s no obligation (or cost) to attend, we just want the bars and meet-up leaders to have a rough idea of the number of people coming! Come and go as you please to the events! 🙂
All the meet-up take place September 21st at 3pm (the second day of the event!).
