The Accessories Council Business Workshop, previously known as Summit which was first held in 2015, is an annual day-long program that features a variety of exciting presentations and panels from notable industry leaders, designed to inspire thinking about business in innovative ways. The 2017 Summit & 2018 Business Workshop were held at the beautiful Hearst Towers. We worked with VSP to create an app which allowed attendees to interact with sessions via live polls, message other attendees, connect their LinkedIn, and participate in a live social feed.
