It’s hard to believe Xperience, Community Brands first ever tech conference, is less than a month away! Attending this event is going to be an amazing opportunity for you to network with fellow partners, customers, industry leaders, and Community Brands team members.

Because our partners are such vital members of the Community Brands ecosystem, we’ve developed a full slate of activities designed just for you. Hosted in sunny Florida at the magical Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, this is a unique experience you will not soon forget!

Here are 10 things I encourage our partners check out:

  1. Dust off your Bow Ties and Fancy Hats – It’s Derby Time!

What could be better than sipping a mint julep while taking in the “Run for the Roses” with fellow partners and Community Brands team members? Your Partner Reception , a Kentucky Derby-themed party, kicks off the Xperience Partner Rally, with drinks, southern style food, and fun prizes for best dressed. So, pack those pastels, bowties, and fancy hats!  Meet with our partner team members, including KellyGene Rubash, Community Brands Partner Manager, who works closely with our Industry Alliance Partners.
