The struggle is real. While we love all the great brands, amazing speakers, cool music and innovative tech — you need a place to refresh and recharge for the long weekend. SocialChorus is here to help! We’ll be camped out at our #SurvivalSuite across from the Convention Center. At the #SurvivalSuite, we’ll have meeting spaces, charging stations, opportunities to meet with social media experts, and even a panel of employee advocacy experts — you know, so you can tell your boss you learned something.

Reconnect: Lounge space and meeting tables, to network with peers and top social experts
Recharge: Device charging, water, snacks, and other survival essentials
