Co-Lab Mini

The return of the un-conference marketing conference

Hansen Belyea proudly partnered again with social media marketing agency Project Bionic to continue building creative momentum and providing space for marketers and designers to connect through our 2nd event, Co-Lab Mini.

Co-Lab Mini was a half day, or “mini”, conference experience. While it was shorter compared to its predecessor, Co-Lab22 and future sibling, Co-Lab23, it was designed to be just as engaging.

For Co-Lab Mini, we returned to the bright and beautiful event space, Metropolist in the SoDo district of Seattle. Co-Lab Mini took place on Wednesday, April 5th, 2023. Registration began at 1:00pm with event activities taking place from 1:30pm-5:30pm.

Opportunities provided through Co-Lab Mini included:
+ Ability to attain or strengthen industry knowledge through interactions with fellow professionals and presentations
+ 3 presentations that covered the topics of leadership, intentionality, and branding
+ 2 moderated round table discussions on topics ranging from marketing, design, and beyond
+ Opportunities to get acquainted, reacquainted, and connect with professionals in marketing, design, and adjacent industries
+ Refreshments and snacks provided throughout the afternoon
+ Event concluded with a happy hour and networking reception

Come join the conversation. Contribute. Connect. Collaborate.
