Inspiration Station Workshops are an informal way to bring a more intimate group together to share perspectives about specific area(s) of interest. Hosting an inspiration station is a great opportunity to share best practices, new ideas, or get feedback and is NO COST for conference attendees and exhibitors. Each Inspiration Station hosts 8-10 people and will be chaired by a designated person offering explorations aligned with the BOOST Conference core values. 

 Joining an Inspiration Station is a chance to learn something new, outside the traditional workshop setting, and to join groups of your peers who share similar challenges or questions that you have. It's a great chance to build connections and create opportunities for collaboration.

To host, you must submit an application for an Inspiration Station below.
