“Meet Your Neighbor” Networking Breakfast Tables

Tuesday, October 1 from 7:30am – 9:00pm

Fuel up on your favorite caffeinated (or decaf) beverage and breakfast treats while meeting other attendees from your neck of the woods. Networking breakfast tables are located within the general breakfast seating, but labeled with a geographic region so you can sit with others who hail from your local area. It’s a great way to make connections at the conference that you can take home with you. This opportunity is open to All Access pass holders.


Meet & Eat Networking Lunches and Birds of a Feather Tables

Tuesday, October 1 through Thursday, October 3

There are two ways to get more out of lunch at SMX than just hot meals! All lunches are included for SMX East All Access pass holders. You’re certain to sit with knowledgeable and engaging people.

Like the experience to be a little more structured? Sign-up for a Birds of a Feather Table. These are great opportunities to continue the conversation with others who share your interests.

Join us in the city that never sleeps for the SMX After Dark Charity Party sponsored by Yext.

This year’s After Dark charity is the Boomer Esiason Foundation Fighting Cystic Fibrosis. Founded by former New York Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason, the foundation’s goals are to improve the quality of life for those affected by cystic fibrosis and to raise money to finding a cure.

SMX and Yext have already committed $10,000 to the Foundation. Won’t you join us and make a donation online here to this incredibly worth cause! We’ll also be accepting donations at the door and during the party. All proceeds will be given to the Foundation.

Sticking with the New York theme, Yext will be transforming its headquarters into the ultimate After Dark party venue! Don’t miss this evening for great conversation with the SMX community, cocktails, food from local eateries, arcade games and music.

Do good AND have fun! Attendance to After Dark is included for all SMX pass holders. We’d really appreciate your support of the Boomer Esiason Foundation Fighting Cystic Fibrosis. Donate here!
