New this year will be a Friday Night Social held in Bee Culture’s Conference Center, the location of the Two day Conference on Saturday and Sunday. It’s a low-key, meet and greet with the speakers and attendees from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Friday where you can pick up your folders with speaker profiles, conference addenda, and lots of information on Medina’s dining and shopping opportunities.
