Explore the Future of the Web

What to tell your boss…

The BossWe know you. Knee-deep in development, mired in technical glitches, so focused on the task at hand that you can’t see past the edge of your monitor, let alone into the next fiscal year.

You’re passionate about the industry, you care about your organization and want to be successful, but the only time you get to think about the future is over a few drinks at the end of a too-long day.

We get that. We’ve been there (some of us ARE there). WebVisions will bust you out of that silo. You owe it to yourself, and your company owes it to you.

Go back to work after the event brimming with a new way of thinking about solutions, chock full of inspiration and information, armed with fresh ideas and ready to conquer the world.

Your boss will be so damned impressed.

We’ve got the Stumptown 40 at Spirit of ’77 on the 7th, the Oregon Storyboard, a game design and digital media showcase at OMSI on the 8th, and our wrap party at the Museum of Contemporary Craft on the 9th.
