SummerCamp22-03We make everyone feel welcome. It's who we are.

Our participants value thought-provoking programs and meaningful conversations, and that's why it's been called "the hottest ticket in town."

In recent years, our bimonthly breakfast attracted upwards of 60-80 professionals -- every time! Plus, our annual one-day super-casual "Summer Camp" conference has reached upwards of 250 registrations.

When we decided to reboot this special community in early 2023, we held a series of focus groups with more than 30 meeting planners and industry suppliers. We asked them to describe what made this group special. Here are some actual quotes:

"The networking is organic. I make it a point to attend."
"It's inclusive. I like knowing everyone in the room."
"I like that they take the time to introduce everyone around the room."
"I don't feel like an audience member; I'm a participant."
"It's a safe space. People who are looking for work can be candid with others."
"There's a concerted effort to keep the planner/supplier ratio intact, intentionally with more planners than suppliers, so everyone can be comfortable."
"These are high level planners, higher than other groups, which is attractive to sponsors."
"As a planner, visiting and experiencing different spaces -- a mix of hotels and other meeting venues -- has been valuable. Keep it up."
"I like going to the programs in the morning. First thing in the morning means you won't miss it. And I don't need to go to DC at the end of the day."
"I looooove Summer Camp."


At FLEX, registration is free. We don't sell our list. We are sponsor-supported, which means that our generous sponsors contribute to the costs of program expenses and maintaining our ongoing management so that we can continue to bring relevant programming and collaborative experiences to our community.
