Thought we’d share some daily updates, pictures, and videos from #ERERC in San Diego.

The first day at ERE is always about networking and getting to know the community. Monday started with a “Meet the Speakers and Writers” where attendees, sponsors, and other speakers had the fun opportunity to meet a bunch of the speakers and several of the regular writers.

We spotted a purple squirrel in the ferns!

Not only was the networking great but people were literally whiteboarding and solving challenges with the amazing talent in the room.

There was an incredible roaming magician!


Here are a few great reasons why attendees are here to learn:

How the night ended

After the meet-the-speakers-and-writers was the welcome reception (which had amazing food and beverages BTW), which was a continuation of the conversations started. Everyone had so much fun. The hotel space is beautiful and after-hours people gathered in the Marina restaurant to keep talking shop and enjoying time together.
