Gala event an integral part of Social Connections

As hockey-hall-of-fame-stanley-cuppeople who have attended previous events know Social Connections isn’t just limited to a day time program. One of the things we try to do is to also provide attendees with an opportunity to really connect and network with other attendees, speakers and organizers by providing an evening program in the form of the Social Connections Gala event. A way to socialize, enjoy some good food, great entertainment and also see something of Toronto outside the venue location. All attendees are invited and there is no additional costs involved.

As we like to stay in theme and Toronto is known (among others) for its ice hockey we opted this time to select the Hockey Hall of Fame as our venue for the Gala. A great location to learn more about the sport (exhibits will be open) play hockey themed games but also a place where you will simply be able to enjoy a night out, have some good food, drinks, connect with other attendees and enjoy the life music. After all, Social Connections is a conference about social business so why not make that a reality!


Hockey-Hall-of-Fame-TorontoThe Gala event will be held in the Hockey Hall of Fame at 7PM directly following the speed sponsoring and is open to all attendees (badge required). The dress code is the same as for the conference itself (business casual) and the location is walking distance from the venue and most hotels.

We hope to see you there!


Entertainment will be provided by Toronto cover band “The Wrong Kids”:
