Connect, discover and enjoy — at “The Hub”

san-francisco-690243_1280What makes a conference extra special – that is on top of great content, exceptional speakers and a high-end location? Here’s the answer. It’s the connections we make, the welcoming atmosphere we experience and that sense of renewal that comes with stepping away long enough to come back refreshed and ready to tackle your biggest challenges.

Ideas and connections

All of this is why we decided to shape a new event at the World Conference — “The Hub.” Yes, the conference keynotes will amaze and the sessions will illuminate, but you also need a place to absorb ideas and meet new people in an informal and natural setting. The Hub will be the place to network, learn and enjoy. Attendees will meet up for lunch, coffee, snacks, join in activities — all with a heaping dose of fun.

Solutions and discoveries

As a central part of this experience, we’re bringing in some of the best solution providers in the industry to share ideas and talk through solutions in a space that makes it easy to learn and connect. And this isn’t just about finding solutions, it’s about opening your eyes to discover unexpected opportunities. Venture into conversations with professionals who understand how to help, get great advice and see where that takes you. Learn more about our sponsors and exhibitors.
