Agenda

Two days in Sandestin, Florida that will leave you inspired and energized.



Sun, Sand & Software 2012 begins at 11am on Friday at the conference Center located within the Grand Sandestin Hotel property with registration and a light lunch, introductions, presentations, and a panel discussion. The day is wrapped up watching the sunset with cocktails and buffet dinner overlooking Choctawhatchee Bay.

At the heart of the Sun, Sand & Software Summit are the real-world case studies from which the presentations stem and the unparalleled access to the speakers and other technology experts. The panel discussion and the evening social provide an environment unlike other technology conferences.

Day two is all about networking with the presenters, panel experts, and other attendees at the event of your choice: golf or deep-sea fishing. Lunch concludes the summit, leaving attendees the remainder of the weekend to enjoy Destin and the surrounding Emerald Coast area.
