Collaboration at CAMX

CAMX fosters innovation and collaboration each year, and networking is a major benefit to conference attendees. CAMX’s extended network opportunities promise to provide attendees with connections that can last throughout their careers.

“CAMX brings the people with the big ideas together,” says Dobbins. “To see such a diverse group of industry professionals building relationships during this event that they can take with them long after they travel home is not only rewarding, but necessary to grow the industry even further.”

For professionals 35 and under, the Young Professionals Meet-Up on Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. is a great way to connect with other like-minded professionals to gain insights and help navigate the industry. This event is a great way to begin a dialogue with someone outside of your specialty or professional circle, paving the way for new ideas.

Like last year, Innovation Park will be located at the rear of the CAMX exhibit hall. The park is comprised of “zones” that allow for networking, learning and lighthearted competition. Innovation Park’s Connection Zone will have some fun surprises, games and opportunities for friendly competition. Attendees will also find “campfire sessions” on trending topics, including workforce development, knowledge transfer, emerging technologies and global trends. The nearby Presentation Theater will highlight breaking news, special announcements and technical presentations.
