Some of you may arrive already on October 24th, and because Boulder is such a great place we are delighted to welcome you to, we would like to offer you a nice optional add-on to the actual forum's agenda from 10AM to 11:30AM.
Colorado Chautauqua Association’s archivists have organized for us a special tour to learn about the history of the Chautauqua Movement and the Colorado Chautauqua while exploring the park. The archive collection at the Colorado Chautauqua contains thousands of historic records dating back to the inception of the chautauqua in 1898. The archivists will share with you information on buildings and grounds and organization operations while visiting the park.
Note that if we offer the tour for free, as it is an optional activity and as the forum officially start at 1:30PM, no lunch is planned that day. Nevertheless, you will have plenty of time to have a nice lunch on your own or with others participants between 11:30AM and 1:30PM.

"As a new HYPE user and first-time attendee of their annual European flagship event, I can attest the HYPE INNOVATE 2018 Bonn Forum provided international innovation champions like me a high-energy, well-thought-out conference experience that featured a wide range of presenters sharing informative content that successfully provoked and inspired innovation in fresh and interesting ways.
Real-world success stories and lessons learned, along with networking opportunities and meaningful candid conversations with HYPE representatives and like-minded users from diverse global industries, made this an invaluable investment of my time and energy as an innovation manager.
The spirited hospitality of the HYPE team made every attendee feel like more than just a client. This crowd of innovation management “lone wolves” quickly became one big innovation community openly sharing and learning—and ready to change the world one HYPE campaign at a time!"

"I attended the 2018 HYPE Annual User Forum in Bonn. It was a well-run user conference with lots of opportunities to meet other professionals driving innovation at their respective companies. The event featured various user presentations that offered insightful experiences and valuable advice on how to overcome a broad range of challenges. The side conversations during breaks and evening events, as well as the new connections made, were just as valuable as the forum's content.
While there were quite a few people from HYPE present, there was no selling effort whatsoever. Their entire focus was on connecting us, the users – something I really appreciated. Also, I got to meet with key product influencers and suggested various SW improvements – and they took their time to really listen.
Overall, I feel the user forum was an excellent event, well worth my time and (travel) effort; and I do recommend to other innovation drivers to consider attending."
