Get started. ILTACON 2018 will feature its first ever Startup Hub. This curated showcase spotlights emerging companies that are seeking to disrupt the status quo to help solve current and future challenges affecting the industry. More than 25 companies vied for the eight slots available in the hub.

Go collaborate. ILTA has created seven custom learning roadmaps for different attendee groups. Each will begin with a facilitated Collaboration Kickoff where participants will discuss common issues. Throughout the conference, each group will meet up to continue the conversation, head to targeted education sessions together, and share takeaways on the last day.

Find a buddy. First-time attendees can sign up for an ILTACON buddy and be paired up with an experienced attendee who will take them under their wing and give them the insider’s perspective on making the most of the conference experience.
