WINNER, Best First Time Event Award
The premiere event in 2012 received two Folio awards: winner for Best First Time Event (B-to-B) and honorable mention for Best Overall Single Event (B-to-B). This year, we intend to raise the bar: more compelling themes, new twists, and a roster of speakers whose knowledge is essential, whose stories are inspiring, and whose enthusiasm is contagious. Together with co-chairs Dale, Travis and Renee, they will lead the conversation across a range of relevant topics impacting the maker business landscape.
