We are getting excited for what’s going to be the biggest Emerge yet! As ever it’s going to be energetic, dynamic, and jam-packed with sessions, lunchtime activities, film screenings, VR experiences – not to mention the opportunity to connect with 500+ like-minded change makers over the course of two-days.

So, how do you make the most of it?

If you have a ticket for the weekend or just Saturday or Sunday – here are some top-tips on getting the best out of Emerge 2017!

Before Emerge

Prep.  Take a look at the programme online which is now complete with the session descriptions and speakers. Get familiar with the range of sessions available and those who you want to meet.

During the Event

Get your free cup! This year we are making Emerge more sustainable, so there will be no other coffee cups available apart from your free Emerge 2017 cup made of Bamboo! Collect yours with your name badge and programme at registration.

Arrive in time. This year we have some great sessions, and have introduced some new track styles (hello Experience, How To, and Mixed-bag), so even if you don’t get a seat in your chosen session, there’ll be three others to choose from. You’ll be spoilt for choice!

Get social. Share your #Emerge17 experience on the Twittersphere! We want bite-size insights, photos, and shout outs to add to our Storyfy highlights post-Emerge.

Chill. If you need to take some time to get away from the hustle and bustle, retreat to our “Zen Zone” for some quiet time. And if it’s not just you that needs to recharge, then each of our Zen Zone pods also have plug sockets for your device.

Network. There are so many ways to meet amazing people at Emerge, whether it’s during coffee breaks and lunchtime sessions, or at our Collaborations Clothesline. But if networking isn’t your strong point have no fear; our lunchtime Speed Networking sessions are the perfect way to meet those like-minded folks looking to connect!

After the Event

Carry the torch. We hope that you will be inspired to act on the learnings you had and the connections you made during Emerge 2017. We encourage you to keep the flame alive and be sure to get to work and create the positive change you wish to see in our world!

See you soon.
