INSPIRATION STATION WORKSHOPS

Inspiration Station workshops are an informal way to bring together a small group to share perspectives about specific area(s) of interest. Hosting an Inspiration Station is a great opportunity to share best practices, discuss new ideas, get feedback through a focus group, or offer a Make-It, Take-It session. There is NO COST for conference attendees and exhibitors to facilitate an Inspiration Station workshop Inspiration Station workshops can accommodate up to 8-10 attendees and are held within the Exhibit Hall. 

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, questions, and ideas that you have. It's a great chance to build connections and create opportunities for collaboration.

The annual deadline to submit an Inspiration Station workshop application is January 31st.
