Introducing Illuminate: Bringing the Best Ideas to Light

3 minutes

It’s official: You’re invited to our hometown, Raleigh, North Carolina, for the Brightly Illuminate conference. Our conference marks the first time we have seen many of you in person since Dude University in 2019. We’re excited to welcome you to Raleigh for four days of insightful educational sessions and networking opportunities with leaders in your field.

Why attend Illuminate?

At Illuminate, you will have the opportunity to meet with over 800 like-minded leaders and professionals from across North America. Enjoy face time with your peers, expand your network and exchange ideas with people who face similar challenges.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn from industry experts and thought leaders who will inspire change. From keynotes and educational sessions to learning labs, you can find innovative ways to challenge yourself and feel inspired to write your own success story.

Speakers and experts will bring tangible examples of best practices that you can apply to your organization. Find out the latest trends in your industry and what others are doing to drive sustainability and efficiency in their operations.

Pair those best practices with case studies and success stories to help create and justify your own strategies. Learn how to tell a compelling story so you can justify budget or funding requests.

You will also have direct access to service providers so you can easily connect and discuss your organization’s needs and find ways to work more effectively. By the end, you will feel empowered to do more and confident in Brightly’s abilities to help you. 

What can you expect?

Festivities will kick off with a bluegrass concert and include sponsor happy hours, a client appreciation dinner, and more. To ensure you get the most out of your convention experience, we offer best-in-class training and over 70 sessions. After listening to feedback from past attendees, we’ve expanded our learning lab hours to guarantee you learn everything you want to know.
