Opening Party

Expect to be treated to the warmest welcome to Grand Rapids.  Thank you to our Sponsor Nationwide, we’ll get you heavy handheld delights to fill your traveling belly and something to quench your thirst. Take the time to introduce your new workshop friends to the friends you met last year or heck, find a buddy that will be headed to the same track as yourself.

5:30 PM–8:00 PM

Talks between two locations, one excursion, and an after party. Start with breakfast at 8am and end at the after party from 6pm–8pm!

After Party: Pyramid Scheme

Relax from the first wave of information and make the most of finding the time for those moments you get with this community. We’ll be providing heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks while listening to local artists. From there, we’ll have local recommendations for the breath of settings you’re looking for (personal to large group) to enjoy your time in Grand Rapids. 

6:00 PM–8:00 PM

Continued talks, one excursion, and a closing party. Kick it off at 8am and close it out from 6pm–9pm.

Closing Party:  SiteLab: Project 1

Goodbye always comes too soon so delay that time with us in the most unique way. Catch the local scene of Project 1 in a warehouse district with event specific installation art and custom accessible architectural elements.  We’ll be providing dinner, signature drinks, live music, and transportation for the most authentic way to close out our time together.
