Great news Insiders. I just got a sneak peak at the official agenda for the Insider Gathering scheduled for April 27-29, 2018 at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel. You might know it better as Double TIPPLE.
I only saw the schedule for Saturday, so I have no idea if there are any "workshops" planned for Friday.

If you've read this far, I'm sorry to say, only one item on the above list will actually occur when the Insiders mentioned on the Double TIPPLE (Insider Gathering) Guest List meet in the DC area in April 2018. I leave it up to you to figure out which one. Come to think of it, many of these topics may be discussed over the weekend, though there certainly won't be any sort of formalized agenda like the one presented here.
Double TIPPLE is not a conference. It is not a symposium (though the original Latin meaning "to drink together" is an apt description). It's just a bunch of members of this online community who will be staying under the same roof for a couple nights, hanging out, trading stories and travel tips, and generally just having fun. If you would like to join us, hop over to Double TIPPLE Hotel and Booking Info for details on how to participate.
