14th Annual ECN Workshop

Life in the Fast Lane: Innovation in Event Management 

The Annual ECN Workshop is back in person for the first time in two years! Join the ECN for this free professional development opportunity to learn more about what it means to be innovative throughout the event planning process. Life is moving fast, and there are many tools to keep up with the challenges thrown in an event coordinator’s journey to the finish line. A light breakfast and full lunch will be provided. 
The last day to RSVP was Friday, Jan. 13. 
We have a limited number of walk-up spots available.

About our sessions

This year's event will feature a keynote, three breakout sessions, and a networking session for attendees and vendors. 

Event Details

The ECN and Workshop Committee is excited to see you at this year's workshop! Below are ways you can prepare for the upcoming event:

  • Get ready to network by creating your own digital business card on the Blinq application
  • We advise Georgia Tech attendees to park in their assigned campus parking spot. Visitors can park in the Visitor parking deck. The ECN is not able to validate Workshop attendee parking. 
  • Dress code for our event is business causal.
