Get hyped for the Big Night Out

The Big Night Out is a fan favorite Connect event where conference attendees get to relax and enjoy an exclusive and private event on us. This year we are embarking on a dinner cruise through the Baltimore Inner Harbor with dancing and cocktails for another great networking opportunity. Please note the following details if you plan on attending:

  • The Spirit of Baltimore cruise is booked for Thursday, July 18 and we board at 6:15pm from the cruise dock.
  • Departure time is 6:45pm and return time is 9:30pm.
  • A full dinner buffet will be provided, with options for vegetarians and those with gluten sensitivities
  • There is a full-service bar on board that accepts cash and major credit cards—Campus Labs is providing two complimentary drink tickets
  • The ship is equipped with restrooms for your convenience
  • You’ll get to enjoy panoramic skyline views, so don’t forget to pack a sweater or light jacket—winds on the water may be cooler than downtown—but if you get chilly there are climate-controlled interior decks
  • There is a dance floor with a live DJ, so wear your dancing shoes!
  • Please be punctual—once the ship leaves, we are unable to return for passengers who missed the boarding time

Important Notice
Concerning Big Night Out Capacity

Connect 2019 is making a splash with huge attendance numbers but as a result we’ve reached capacity on the Spirit of Baltimore cruise boat. Those registering for Connect after June 24 will be added to the Big Night Out waitlist and will receive notification of potential openings in the order in which they registered. If a place becomes available, you should receive a notice via email on the day of the cruise.
