Great conferences are an important part of technology and design culture. They’re a fantastic place for learning and spreading ideas, stories and friendships. Anyone who’s been to a conference knows exactly what I’m talking about. Today, I’m excited to tell you about SuperConf, a design, development and entrepreneurial conference in Downtown Miami, happening on February 21 and 22 — that’s this Thursday and Friday.
“Who’s speaking?” I hear you ask. The lineup is pretty great: there’s our very own Drew Wilson, a guest from our podcast and creator of Cheddar, Sam Soffes — along with Gregg Pollack, founder at CodeSchool, just to name 3. In all, there’s a grand total of 9 speakers, which you can check out on SuperConf’s website.
Not only are we excited to share this conference with you, but we have a special treat. 20 of The Industry readers can receive $70 off the price of a General Admission ticket. These sell for $325: we’re giving you the chance to save over 20%! Simply use the code THEINDUSTRY when checking out.
Day 1: Startup Blastoff and Super Workshops
There’s a full schedule available on the SuperConf website, but here’s a taster of what you’re in for. Day one of SuperConf is all about the Startup Blastoff. This is a headfirst dive into the word of emerging technology companies. The website explains:
Startup Blast Off is where 8 new companies launch their products and show off the superhuman technology they’ve been working on. 8 companies will enter, but only one will emerge as the Super Startup of the year and take home $20k in cash and prizes. A panel of top tier judges, made up of founders, angels, venture capitalists & journalists will pick our winner. If you think your company is awesome enough to be called Super, then click here to apply.
On top of this great experience on day 1, there is the option to purchase tickets to Super Workshops. These aren’t included in the base price of the conference, but if you’re saving $70 already, maybe an extra bit of spending won’t feel so bad? What does a Super Workshop consist of? SuperConf explains:
Learn hands on from the leading experts in design, development, lean startup methodologies, and growth hacking. Our workshops will be comprised of 2 tracks: product design & development, and startup growth & analysis.
So, day one sounds pretty packed.
Day 2: Learning and Networking
The second day of SuperConf puts even more “super” into the conference. Hear what the 9 conference speakers have to share with you regarding their success, processes and what they’ve learned:
Join us as 9 of the top people in the world share their stories and insights on how they achieved startup success. We’ll be covering bleeding edge processes, innovation in design, predictions on technology & building massive success. These 9 individuals have all become Super in their own right, and will be sharing their super powers with you.
Sometimes I wish I didn’t live in the UK. This conference sounds like a great chance to meet with and learn from some pretty influential people in the design and technology world. It’s certainly cheaper to attend than many of the conferences I’ve seen in the past — when combined with saving $70, it’s a pretty awesome deal.
We hope you can make it — and for those of you going, I’m sure you’ll have a super time! Be sure to say hi to Drew, if you see him — and report back in our comments section (or via Twitter) how the conference went and how much fun you had! We’re really excited to offer our readers a discount and hope you’re as happy about it as we are.
