HLCON 2020

Virtual Networking Events

Connection is key!

In lieu of exhibitor tables and networking lunches, we are offering virtual networking events at HLCON for the first time ever.

Mingle with colleagues, peers and new friends in these virtual "hallways" that provide a social gathering spot in between learning sessions. Hallways are hosted by guest community leaders. Take time to meet and greet and learn about new resources and programming from local organizations.
