THE BRAND NEW EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP TRACK


This is the third session track you can be a part of, but what makes this worth the VIP ticket are the additional networking events and expert speakers you'll have exclusive access to. Meet other's in your industry at the executive level to expand your network and gain valuable skills from experts in their field.

NETWORK WITH YOUR PEERS


Fuel Good has always been a great place to catch up with old friends and make new ones in the process, but this year we've taken it to another level. Not only will you be moving with your peers through the different breakout session tracks, but we've built more networking into the schedule than ever before. In addition to the Opening Reception, Networking Reception, and the Industry Networking Dinner (included in the Executive Track, additional ticket required for Regular Conference Pass), we've added more networking breaks throughout the day and have opened a Networking Lounge, giving you a quiet place to get away from the conference for conversations with peers or just to get a little work done.

WE HAVE A REPUTATION FOR THROWING A GREAT EVENT

From the intense battle for Twitter Wall champion to coffee card trivia during sessions we ensure that we insert lots of fun into the event.
