As we settle back into the office and continue planning our 2018 conferences, we’re still reminiscing about the good times had at NWC17 in Pasadena.

First of all, we want to thank all of our attendees, speakers and staff for making this event uplifting and full of creativity-fueling excitement. Each day was packed full of energizing moments that left us smiling and ready to put our newfound inspiration to good use.

It all kicked off with the Thursday Night Networking Meetup at Barney's Beanery. A huge thanks to everyone who attended! It was so much fun to watch as attendees formed new friendships and bonded over their craft. We had a blast sharing scrumptious appetizers and getting to know you before we plunged into the action-packed weekend.

In addition to the many skill-enhancing sessions, we had the time of our lives at the Halloween Themed Cocktail Reception. We loved seeing all of the amazing costumes, and we want to thank all of you for putting so much time into this event! A special thanks to our top winners: Mr. Collins, Annie Rice and Mr. Darcy & Elizabeth Bennett.

We hope you all had as much fun as we did, and if you couldn’t make it this year, be sure to join us in 2018. We’ll save you a seat!
