Join us for a social mixer after the Tune up

To close off the day the right way, we will be hosting a social mixer from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Local Public Eatery (273 Garry St), after the conference to allow you to network, chat more with fellow members and have an overall great time. The location will be announced later, but it will be walking distance from the venue.

Complimentary appetizers will be served and each attendee will receive two free drink tickets.
