If you don’t know by now, Conga Connect, our first ever user event, is taking place March 6th-9th in Orlando. That’s just around the corner, but there’s still time to join us for an event you won’t want to miss. In our previous posts, we’ve described all of the value Connect will provide attendees. But there are many attractions in Orlando beyond the personal and professional development opportunities you’ll find at the event. Here are some of the things you can do there during your visit.
