Boston Community Launch
April 10, 2018 | 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Help shape the growth of the analytics community in the Boston area
MinneAnalytics recently announced our first East Coast analytics conference in Boston, planned for August 2018. Like our Midwest events, expect a conference experience that is accessible, authentic and engaging.
Imagine an all-day, multi-track event in the Boston area for 400-700+ people for free.
Data science professionals in the Boston area are invited to meet our organizing team and share their ideas at a community launch event on Tuesday, April 10 at OptumLabs in Cambridge. If you are interested in advancing the analytics community and passionate about engagement with your peers, this event is for you.
Feel free to share this with anyone in the Boston area that has a passion for building community in the Big Data, Analytics, and Data Science space.
Key needs to give thought to:
- Venue Capacity or 400-700+ people in 3 to 6 rooms. We like college and corporate campuses. Stay close to the community.
- Speakers We already have Tom Davenport as a keynote and a few others but we need another 30 or so.
- Volunteers Session chairs, conference vice-chairs, registration help, etc.
- VIP Venue We normally host a Thought Leader Reception the evening before our conferences so all the speakers, organizers, and leaders in the community build strategic relationships. Maybe 100-120 people.
Our primary goal is to have another great Big Data, Analytics, and Data Science event that we are known for. The secondary goal is to seed an organization like ours in Boston and we are willing to fund it.
We also want to establish relationships with colleges and universities. We had 437 students from 51 schools participate in our student data challenge late last year and we’d like to expand this reach in 2018.
