Birds of a Feather

Impromptu talks, announcements, etc.

Certain talks are either unplanned or are of limited interest to the bulk of attendees. Such talks can be handled either near a given exhibitor’s table or can be moved to the breakroom/dining area that is central to the Heron Point facility.

Scheduling and facilities for such talks is up to the participants — please be mindful of other CoCoFEST! attendees!
