Pre Event // Wednesday, October 26, 2016
|6:00-7:30||Drinks and Appetizers at the CampBrain Office|
Getting into Toronto on Wednesday? Happen to live here?
Join us for appetizers and drinks from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at our offices on Wednesday (Oct 26). Very informal and light, this is just a chance to see where we work, chat with Brainers and start the conference off right.
Day 1 // Thursday, October 27, 2016
|8:15-9:00||Registration & Breakfast|
Join us for dinner and drinks at the Amsterdam BrewHouse on Thursday night (Oct 27). Opened in 2013, the brewpub is located right in the heart of Toronto’s waterfront. While it opened relatively recently, it is actually in an iconic waterfront landmark, an old Pier 4 boathouse. The views are spectacular and the venue is known for its excellent craft beers and tasty food! It is also a great spot for an evening stroll along the waterfront. Buses will transport everyone from the conference venue and back to hotels – it is only a 10 minute ride.
Day 2 // Friday, October 28, 2016
|3:00-5:00||One-on-One sessions (for those that wish to remain)|
"I had a blast! I thought it was so well organized and professionally done. I was able to take away so much new information and have already started applying it to our application process. It was eye opening to meet admins from across North America and see the unique ways they utilize the software. You did a wonderful job of balancing professional development and fun. Thank you!!"
The conference is focused on the Web version of CampBrain, with many sessions specifically tailored to either beginner or advanced levels. We will have 25+ sessions over the two days, delivered in a variety of formats (lecture, panel, roundtable). Please bring your laptop or tablet as many of the sessions will encourage hands-on work! Don't forget that you will also be able to book one-on-one sessions with our support staff should you wish to review your specific setup and questions.
Here are some of the areas of focus:
"Wonderful conference! Great content, interesting sessions, good variety of topics and information to cover. Presenters did a great job presenting the information so it was easy too understand and were open to all questions. I said it once, but I am happy to say it again...Well Done CampBrain!! Thank you!"
