COLLISION: The Coolest Tech Conference On The Planet

For first time attendees experiencing Collision, you anticipate having your mind rapidly fed with a world of knowledge. They market themselves as "America's Fastest Growing Tech Conference," -- but, what they failed to declare was the heaps amount of fun to be had!

They should call this conference "Colossal" due to its considerable epic non-stop night summit entertainment.

Zero exaggeration. This conference should come with a serious warning label.

If you didn't attend Collision this year in New Orleans, which just so happened to be in between two JazzFest weekends (coincidence much? I think not!) -- you definitely missed out.

Thousands of people from multiple countries gather together to soak in the world's prominent thought-leaders' expertise. From the KeyNote talks, Roundtable Forums, Speaker Series, Exhibition, Investors Lounge to Startup Pitches. That's what happens during 9-5 of the conference.

Now, cue in 5:01PM and let the good times roll!

The Sponsors and Partners of Collision did not hold back on their after parties! Their Night Summit events surely didn't disappoint. From bowling, bar crawls, party shuttle buses, happy hours to live jazz bands in mansion parties and Private Mayor's dinner --- there was no end to the pure magic ahead.

At every venue, guests were welcomed with traditional New Orleans drinks and mouth-watering Southern comfort food! The evenings were filled by networking among people with innovative ideas being shared over glasses of whiskey while swaying to the sounds of Jazz bands enchanting us all around.

Then there was that one time at BCG Digital Ventures' event....

Where the delicious drinks wouldn't stop flowing, and suddenly they all told us to round up on shuttle buses to the next party by Accenture. We were not prepared to experience the wonderland ahead. No amount of prep time could have geared us for this kind of celebration!

One thing's for sure, Collision did not disappoint. At all.

This is the conference that every other should view as the "Oscars." Its award winning caliber of class has set industry standards of conferences so high, it'll be a challenge to top Collision. To the Collision team who worked hard to make all this magic happen happen for us, a toast to you!

With all this withdrawal already, we can only countdown the days to Web Summit 2017. See you all in Lisbon!
