We’re just going to come right out and say it—you can’t go wrong with an early bird ticket to OfficeNinjas IRL Dallas.
First, there’s the savings. You know you want to go (or you will after you read this article), so why not get your ticket before 9/21 and save a little cabbage? Second, you’ll be securing your spot and eliminating any chance of missing out on the IRL goodness (our events sell out all the time)!
This event’s theme is Technology and Today’s Office Ninjas, so whether you’re the resident workplace techie or you have a few things to learn, this event is for you. Still need some convincing? Here are 10 reasons you don’t want to miss OfficeNinjas IRL.
1. Good Company
A professional network is a living thing that needs to be cultivated, so we’ve carved out plenty of time for you to ADMINgle with other attendees. We’re expecting over 300 Executive Assistants, Office Managers, Admins, and other types of Office Ninjas from companies like Dave & Buster’s, Alon Brands, FM Global, Time Warner Cable, Southwest Airlines, Yum! Brands, Ryan LLC, Texas Rangers Baseball and more! Sign up here!
2. Thought Leadership
Trey Bowles, serial entrepreneur and founder/CEO of The Dallas Entrepreneur Center, will be leading one of the event’s featured talks. As a driving force in bringing innovation and technology to Dallas, he’ll share with us the latest in this growing startup community, which, according to Forbes, is “poised to be the next Silicon Valley tech hub.” Sign up here!
Bring your business cards AND your appetite. Our friends from Low Country Quisine are preparing a spread that’s inventive and elegant, but still has tons of soul. (You will not go hungry… seriously.) Plus, all ninjas will enjoy an open bar stocked with tasty wine from E&J Gallo and all your favorite soft drinks, courtesy of Coca-Cola. Sign up here!
4. Fireside Ninja Chats
Perhaps you’ve wondered, “How do other ninjas do it?” Finally, their secrets will be revealed! Join frank conversations with Dallas-Fort Worth ninjas and get tips on the best tech tools, new apps, and office efficiencies. Sign up here!
5. The Marketplace
It’s the anti-trade show, if you will. No banners, canned pitches, or hard sells. Just honest, no-pressure conversations with some of our favorite vendors. Some of our curated group of companies includes Moshi, Bottega Louie, The FruitGuys, High Profile Staffing, and Scarborough & Tweed. Stay tuned for updates and more details! Sign up here!
6. Good Ol’ Fashioned Fun
It’s not all business. In addition to serving up tons of great resources and stellar networking opportunities, we’re stuffing OfficeNinjas IRL with fun, interactive activities including photobooths from Shutterbooth, a lip-synching party booth courtesy of LeForce Entertainment, and Live Painting with Abel Garcia Designs! So maybe we should call it “new fashioned” fun. Right? Sign up here!
7. Tech Demos
Be the first to know about the newest Dallas-area startups and tech companies. This part of the event is still under wraps, we can’t say much more… details coming soon! Sign up here!
8. A Reunion!
We had so much fun working with the Admin Awards that we asked them to join us for OfficeNinjas IRL. The team will be helping out at our event, and Sunny Nunan, their founder extraordinaire, will be leading one of our dynamic panel discussions. Reunited and it feels so good! Sign up here!
9. Raffle Prizes
We’re raffling off over 30 high-quality items, which means your chances for walking away with a sweet prize are strong. Make sure you stick around for the drawing, because you gotta be there to win. Sign up here!
10. THE Swag Bag
If there’s one thing we believe with all of our ninja hearts, it’s this: there’s no excuse for crappy swag bags. We don’t tolerate pointless postcards and cheapo junk. Everything in our swag bags is stuff we absolutely love and want to share with you. Sign up here!
It’s a pretty air-tight case for why you should attend, right? If you’re ready to snag your ticket, and the only thing holding you back is the OK from your manager, consider using this handy “permission slip.”
