Things to Know Before WideOrbit Connect 2018

WideOrbit Connect 2018 is almost here. Our team is looking forward to hosting TV and Radio leaders for two days of insightful sessions, networking opportunities, and San Francisco activities.

Before you pack your bags and head West, here are a few things to remember ahead of WideOrbit Connect 2018.


Monday’s Welcome Reception

Join the WideOrbit team and fellow attendees for the Welcome Reception, 5pm in Sunset Court at the Palace Hotel. Refreshments will be served between 5-7pm.

The days start early

Both days begin bright and early, but be sure to note the different start times for sessions.

  • Tuesday: breakfast starts at 7:30am, followed by a keynote by Eric Mathewson at 8:30am. Sessions will begin at 9:10am.
  • Wednesday: breakfast starts at 7:30am, and sessions will begin right after at 8:30am.

Special guest keynote

On Tuesday, we welcome a very special lunchtime keynote! Captain Randall Reeves will share tales from his 30,000 mile solo sailing expedition, and what you can learn from his experience.

Connect Casino Cruise

On Tuesday night, we set sail. After the final session lets out at 5pm, follow the signs to board our cable cars between 5:15-5:45pm (last cable car will leave at 5:45pm sharp). Don’t forget to wear your badge and layer up—it’s windy on the water.

Play the Connect game and win prizes

You will notice your room key card has a special design. Team up with three fellow attendees to place your keys together to form a composite, take a photo, and post it on social media with the hashtag #WOConnect18. There’s a chance to win for those who participate!
