The Firebrand Community Conference is incredibly beneficial for learning new capabilities, workflow efficiencies, and industry best practices. I learn as much from other attendees and Firebrand clients as I do from Firebrand itself. Invaluable and informative.

I’ve been a Firebrand customer for twelve years, and the Community Conferences have always been where I’ve made the biggest leaps in my TM skills. Not to mention that, I’ve always come away with a fresher understanding of trends in metadata and very often strategies I can put into practice immediately to give sales a boost.

Lodging and Travel:

We will be meeting at the beautiful Newberry Library in Chicago, IL, close to the Magnificent Mile and across the street from Washington Square Park.

We do not have a room block available for this event, but there are many hotels and other rental options and within walking distance.

Traveling to Chicago is easy! O’Hare and Midway airports are both about 15-20 miles away from the downtown core. While most people seem to prefer driving in Chicago, there are mass transit options that will get you from the airports into the city.

Set Up a Personal Meeting!

In addition to the conference on Wednesday, key team members of the Firebrand Technologies team will be available on Thursday, October 26 to meet with you individually. We can talk about projects you want to work on, give you a demo of a service or piece of the system you are not yet using, brainstorm workflow or data interface needs, and more.

If you would like to set up a time to chat with us, email Joshua Tallent with some information about what you want to talk about and when you are available on Thursday. We’ll work out the details! (Location TBD)
