While technology has enabled remote communication like never before, we feel this has also increased the importance of face-to-face interaction. There simply is no substitute. For this reason we have created 4 fantastic opportunities for our attendees which are designed to promote and enable networking in fun and safe environments. No RSVP’s are required, there is no cost to attend, just come and join us at any or all of these amazing venues.
The 2017 socials will include the following opportunities:
