We ideally want you to arrive at our event already knowing (or being familiar with) at least a few other friendly faces at the event. The private Facebook group you get invited to after purchasing your ticket is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with fellow attendees and speakers. We’ll host several Twitter parties, Facebook chats, and additional ways you can connect with fellow attendees before the big day. We also try to host a familiarization experience or activity the day before the main event, so we’re all fast friends. Even if you’re an introvert (like our cofounder, Emelia) we want you to feel comfortable and included by the time you’re finding a seat for the event.
