The Community Technology Summit is a one-day immersive learning experience for online community professionals. This all-inclusive experience will take place at Convene Boston on Wednesday, October 4, 2023.
This event is designed for community professionals working with all types of online communities - including customer or partner communities focused on support, product innovation, and marketing/brand awareness, and employee communities focused on innovation, collaboration, and communication.
Connect with the best, fast.
In just one day you can meet with leading community vendors, hear from experts in community technology, and meet peers eager to learn and share.
From peer case studies to deep dives on AI and Community Everywhere to extend networking sessions you'll walk away inspired and energized.
Community technology doesn't have to be overwhemling.
Launching, migrating, and managing online communities without tech expertise can lead to expensive and time-consuming mistakes. Learn from solutions providers and online community professionals who have been in your shoes.
It's unlike other community events.
The Community Technology Summit is different, by design. The number of sponsors and participants is limited to ensure meaningful connections and productive conversations.
Breakfast, lunch, unlimited snacks and beverages, and an open bar cocktail party ensure you can move through the day thinking about one thing - community.
