Think Tank Dinners

We have expanded our Open Source Think Tank conference into a year-long thought leadership program of events and communications, bringing together global senior executives to discuss the present and future of open source in a collaborative and collegial manner.

Held in various locations across the globe, Think Tank Dinner events will take place throughout the year, offering executives the opportunity to network with a larger and geographically broader audience, expanding Think Tank conversations into new verticals and territories.
