We're partnering up on this event because we understand YOU, our members and our clients, and what an intense weekend you'll be having! We saw an unmet need: one night without programming, many of you in San Francisco for the biggest weekend all year for your company, and just couldn't help but bring you all together for a beautiful, casual gathering.
