About XDP

XDP is a two-day, business-focused experience for association professionals and partners. You’ll work together to create better experiences for your event audiences and increase the success of your conferences and tradeshows. You’ll spend day one in The Lab, a collaborative learning environment where you’ll share ideas and tackle industry issues in three zones of educational content. On day two, you’ll sit down one on one with industry partners at the Business Exchange, where you’ll start planning your events for the years ahead. Top it all off with outstanding entertainment and plenty of time to connect and network.
