How will you help me meet other attendees?

In addition to learning from our amazing speakers and sitting down with our mentors for one-on-one conversations, you will make valuable connections with other attendees during breakout sessions, the reception, and attendee dinners at local restaurants. Conference attendees are just as extraordinary as the speakers. You’ll encounter a mix of new and seasoned practitioners from companies of all sizes, in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, government, non-profit, technology, retail and beyond. We will also be offering a networking app a couple weeks before the conference.
