Business Book Exchange
We are excited to bring back the Business Book Exchange this year. It’s our own version of “The Little Library” with professional books. Please bring a book from your personal library to exchange with other attendees.

Bourbon Sponsor
Each year we invite a local spirit sponsor to bring some local flavor to our community. This year we are proud to partner with Jethra Creed. The Master Distiller for Jeptha Creed will be joining us for a brief discussion about bourbon and distilled spirts and lead us in a tasting during the reception.

Please be sure to attend both receptions. 1. The 28th reception at Mellwood immediately following the keynote speaker.2. The March 1st Toast to Five Years will be held at the AC Hotel in the lobby bar at 6:30.

Attire & Weather
We are officially a Smart Casual conference. Be sure and pack layers!  Kentucky weather changes dramatically this time of the year when the sun goes down.  It could be in the 60s during the day and drop to the low 40s when the sun goes down.
