The morning’s format will be rapid fire and will invite audience participation by providing a mobile voting app allowing those in attendance to weigh in after each topic. Audience results will be displayed in real time.

Attendees are also invited to suggest panel topics by tweeting to @DSFederation with the hashtag #coffeetopic. Topic authors will be identified as topics are posed to the panel, which will consist of:

•Bryan Meszaros, CEO & Founder, OpenEye Global
•Phil Lenger, President & Creative Director, Show + Tell
•Jeff Hastings, CEO, BrightSign

The event will run from 8:30-10:15am followed by a Walking Tour, which departs at 10:30. A breakfast buffet will be served starting at 8:30am and the panel discussion will start at 9:00am. Admittance is $10 for DSF Members, $30 for non-members and will include the breakfast buffet. Spots for both the breakfast and Walking Tour are limited.
