Hive X Young Professional Conference Weeks Away
This year, Hamilton’s premier young professional conference on Saturday, October 18th is embracing the new Hamilton moniker as the “Ambitious City” and is called “Ambition”. This one day conference will bring together young professionals, to brainstorm, get involved and make change in the community.
Last year’s HIVE X conference welcomed approximately 240 participants. Realizing that sustainable growth can only come from building on a stable foundation, this year’s conference will focus on the ambitious growth of Hamilton. It asks: how can Hamilton’s young leaders achieve a fine balance between thought and action while pursuing their goals?
HIVE X participants will end the day by experiencing what Hamilton has to offer, culturally. Participants are invited to a Ray Charles tribute concert hosted by the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra followed by a HIVE X “Motown” after-party, where they can unwind after a long and enriching day, meet and greet the artists, and mingle with fellow young professionals.
