All Things Open 2017- By the Numbers

So much goes into planning and coordinating a conference, especially one as large as All Things Open. We now work a full 12 months on the event and, in all honesty, even more than that. Much of the location-related logistics coordination now begins years in advance.

That said, it’s wonderful when all that work culminates in the event each October. It is a truly a labor of love and we are grateful for the success we’ve been so fortunate to enjoy.

While we’re now looking ahead and working on 2018, it is also helpful to look back at the numbers from 2017. They tell a story and capture the event in a way mere words simply can’t.
