Making It Work
Philadelphia 15 conference
May 5-7 2015

Social events

Whether you are the natural-born networker or think that networking does not come natural, our conference social events are excellent networking opportunities; participants and speakers get together at good venues and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal.
The social events are integral to J. Boye conferences and have been so since the start in 2005.

"One of the things that sets J. Boye conferences apart is the special social events organized each evening where attendees and speakers have quality, face-to-face time. The J. Boye team acts like 'human neurones' making sure all the right connections are made." - Jane McConnell, NetStrategy/JMC

Most of the social events are included in the conference attendance fee. Just remember to register your attendance at the respective events.
