Special Events

Collective Imagination is more than sessions and workshops.
There are plenty of opportunities to get to know your fellow attendees, and the hosting city.

You can look forward to a number of tours, receptions, meetups, and social mixers to keep you engaged. Social events at CI are the perfect opportunities to mingle with fellow TMS users and discuss the events of the day.
