Picture a conference.
Now picture the exact opposite.
Nothing determined. No expectations. The Unconference simply provides the backdrop and opportunity for creativity and collisions. iKC: The Unconference returns in 2014 with the unique open-format to facilitate conversations and collaboration. Attend the only conference in Kansas City where the agenda, format and topics are completely directed by you. When you make the agenda, every session pertains to you. Anticipate the unexpected. Speak the unscripted. Attend the unconference.
