Work Hard, Play Hard at Summit 2019

It’s our favorite time of the year again! The sun is out, warm weather is finally here, and Summit is just around the corner.

As we prepare for the big event, we’re starting to see excitement build around our action-packed agenda and opening keynote from former Blue Angels solo lead pilot John Foley. If more than 100 sessions and hands-on labs aren’t enough to kick you into high gear, just wait until you hear John’s amazing story and fascinating insight into what it takes to succeed in extreme, high-stakes environments.

…we’ve designed this year’s Summit to not only give you a look ahead at the future of data and analytics, but to provide you with some well-deserved fun when you need it most.

While Summit is bound to keep you busy with educational opportunities, we at Information Builders know that all hard work has to come with a little play. That’s why we’ve designed this year’s Summit to not only give you a look ahead at the future of data and analytics, but to provide you with some well-deserved fun when you need it most. Here are some event highlights we think you’ll look forward to:

Women in Technology Discussion

The past few years have been monumental for women breaking down barriers and paving the way in the technology space. To celebrate this success and discuss the current challenges and opportunities around diversity and inclusion in the workplace, join industry thought leader and one of the most successful women in technology, Claudia Imhoff, on Wednesday, June 5 for an interactive discussion open to all. The more diverse the audience, the better the discussion!

A Night Out at Universal Studios

Arguably one of the most exciting perks of being a Summit attendee – this year we’re bringing back exclusive access to ALL of Universal Studio’s Island of Adventure theme park! Join us on Wednesday, June 5, for an unforgettable night of fun through the World of Harry Potter, Marvel Super Hero Island, Jurassic Park, and more.

Sunrise Yoga

In need of a little rest and relaxation? We’re offering early-morning yoga sessions to start your day off on the right foot. Join us on June 5 or 6 (or both!) to unplug and unwind by the lovely Rosen Centre Pool Deck. All levels are encouraged to join.

Get Social and Swag It Up

Of course, it wouldn’t be Summit without some on-site social fun. This year, we’re bringing back our popular social lounge and packing the show with opportunities to earn some amazing Information Builders swag. Here’s how to earn your bucks at the show:

  • Tweet three times and follow @infobldrs on Twitter. Tweets must include #IBSummit and our handle. Attendees can do this once per day to earn swag bucks
  • Post once on LinkedIn, including #IBSummit, and follow us. All social content needs to be Summit-related!
  • Show us some love and leave a review on a crowd-sourcing site
  • Visit our Partner Pavilion and chat with these exciting tech vendors and solution providers. Collect tickets at each booth to redeem points
  • When you’re ready to redeem your bucks for some amazing swag, just stop by the social lounge and we’ll take care of the rest

We hope you’re just as excited as we are for this year’s event!

If you haven’t already, make sure to register and build out your agenda using our Summit app, available for Apple and Android devices, or you can text “app” to 70700 to download.
