And now to WAX poetic...

Bees are a social group. To successfully manage their colony, they rely on communication, complex construction of their nest, environmental control and division of labor. Sounds like the life of a Meeting and Event Professional! A beehive is what we humans build to house the bees so they are able to develop their fruitful honeycombs. The Hive is what we built to help you develop your fruitful career. 
See you at the Hive!
This awesome day of mind expansion is brought to you by the generosity of our AMAZING Sponsors. The Hive would not exist without their support. We like to think of them as our Bee Keepers!
