Bringing your dream event to life sometimes means finding like-minded partners who can help take your vision to the next level. Whether you’re looking to boost attendance or tap into new funding and resources, these talks are geared to help you identify strategic partnerships that match your goals as you grow. From connecting with corporate sponsors to building meaningful connections with grassroots community partners, you’ll hear from our panel of experts in exclusive interviews and get a chance to ask them your own questions in our audience Q&A.
