Recap: Forum 2017

Another great client Forum took place at our Des Plaines, Illinois headquarters last week! If you weren’t able to attend, here’s a quick recap of the event.

What is the Forum?

The Forum is an annual event that holds for its clients to educate them on the latest important web topics, trends, and solutions. The event provides the opportunity for clients to network, ask questions, and find out more about the wide range of services has to offer, from digital marketing to search, hosting, and more.

The Forum took place on Thursday, September 28th, and we welcomed more than 70 clients to the event.

Keynote Speaker – Chicago Blackhawks

This year, we had the pleasure of welcoming Brian Howe, Senior Manager of Event Marketing at the Chicago Blackhawks, as our keynote speaker. is proud to call the Chicago Blackhawks a longtime client. In our most recent engagement, we developed a new Blackhawks Bars website for the organization. helps fans find bars that are part of the Official Chicago Blackhawks Bar Rewards Program, which rewards fans with points when they “check-in” to official bars that are using the app. These points can later be redeemed for Blackhawks prizes.
