The networking part of our events,  as well as the open atmosphere, is a signature part of our forums. The agenda is punctuated with several breaks and networking evenings to ensure you have multiple opportunities to talk to everyone and exchange directly with the other participants about your best practices and lessons learned. Our networking evenings include: 

Tuesday, Oct. 1st: The night before the official start of the forum, we like to bring everyone together for a get-together dinner. Gathering in this informal way gives participants a chance to break the ice, get to know the other participants, and feel comfortable with the entire audience before the forum. This dinner is included in your ticket.

Wednesday, Oct. 2nd: On the second evening, participants will enjoy another dinner with some fun activities in order to relax after a full day of presentations and breakout sessions. The location will also be announced later, and this dinner is also included in your ticket.



Thursday, Oct. 3rd: If you choose to stay in Boulder Thursday evening, we invite you to join us for an optional, informal dinner. The location will also be announced later. This dinner is not included in your ticket.


For the first time, we will also offer an app for you to manage your schedule, interact with participants, ask speakers questions, and book meetings with attendees and/or HYPE team members.
