What is an Unconference?
An unconference is a participant-driven meeting. The term “unconference” has been applied, or self-applied, to a wide range of gatherings that try to avoid one or more aspects of a conventional conference, such as high fees, sponsored presentations, and top-down organization.
We have a wide range of speakers coming, but the aims of the day is to build dialogue and relationships. Everyone is welcome.
