Come join us in Banff in May 2018!

Mark off your calendars. We are meeting in Banff for our next 2-day Agile Open Space. The dates are Monday-Tuesday, May 28-29, 2018. Get your ticket on Eventbrite before we sell out!


We Inspect & Adapt

Based on feedback from the 2017 event in Vancouver, we have adjusted the Open Space to two full days. This gives us more time for conversations, learn from each other, and just plain old have more fun.

Banff? Yes Banff!
We continue the Agile Open Canada tradition of moving the event to a new city each year. In our first year, we held the event in Calgary. Since then, we have been in Vancouver and Victoria. This year, we are back in Alberta in over-the-top-beautiful Banff.

OK, where in Banff?
The venue is Banff Park Lodge. We have secured a number of rooms that the participants are able to book in connection with the Open Space event. After you buy your ticket, you will get an email with instructions on how to reserve a room.

Format
The 2018 Agile Open Space builds on all the good points from the past three years. We play. We smile. We laugh. Come prepared to share your latest ideas, challenges, lessons learned, laughable moments, and experiments. Passion is contagious! Is this your first Open Space, read more here.
