Un-conferences are highly energized events that focus on the amazing conversations that often make a standard conference worth attending. Rather than listen to experts talk at you, when you participate in an un-conference you suggest and vote on topics and then ask the questions that matter to you while sharing your knowledge and experience with peers.
This creates a new way to network that can quickly establish meaningful networking relationships while also helping you tap into the know-how of businesses that are working through similar issues to you. Un-conferences set a new standard for peer-based learning and networking.
