You will be required to do some "assignments" before attending the event - including preparing a 5 minutes TEDTalk style presentation; except that we call it a "TANKTalk." You will be presenting to your group with this presentation - have fun!!!
More details regarding the assignments will be included in your Pre-Tank Orientation Kit aka. "The Think Aheads" which will be sent to you after you've registered and secured your seat.
We hate having to even bring this up; but… BMG is NOT Match or Tinder dot com. It's totally creepy to try to hit on people at a professional event like this. Regardless of how ridiculously attractive we are; pretty pretty please be a Cool Cat, and not a Creepy Cat. Don't hit on people (romantically) please.
BMG General Ground Rules: No hard-selling, hard pitching or "Me Monsters" please.
* A "ME MONSTER" is someone who cannot stop talking about themselves and has no awareness or consideration for others' existence. Strange people but they DO walk among us.
You will find leaving your ego or sense of entitlement at the door will help you maximize your experience at this gathering.
It is the year of 2020 and it seems that a lot of people are feeling rather "restless" and easily irritated and can get offended easily. Please avoid deliberate conversations that revolve around STRONG BORDER-LINE BULLYING political, racial or religious comments and/or opinions - it's just safer for everyone to not go there.
Last and not least, don't forget to bring your "Funny Bone", goofy self and be ready to let your hair down to have fun!
We've given you the addresses, please use Google Map or GPS - it should be super easy to find!
You can't miss it!
If you're from out of Utah State, please find your way to Salt Lake City (if you're flying) and if you have a car, or even if you're taking a Uber or Lyft; it should be fairly easy to get to Lindon/Pleasant Grove, Utah - which is where all three event venues are located. If you're coming in from out of State, we recommend you to stay at the below recommended hotel where you can find all the details under the LODGING section.
This BMG Think Tank Summits are always a full-blown entrepreneurs networking event; hence, we do not recommend bringing non-business or non-entrepreneurial plus-1's or spouses to attend. Mostly because we do not want them to feel bored or feel the pressure to talk to people. Not everyone likes to network or outgoing that way and we want to respect that and prevent any social awkwardness.
However, if your partner or spouse is highly social and outgoing; is an extravert and enjoys talking and mingling with others, he or she is definitely welcome to join us. Just make sure you warn them that this could be life-changing. The admission price listed is per person price regardless of who it is.
It is crucial for you to inform us if you have any special dietary needs or restrictions. Please be sure to make a note under the dietary needs section when you register for the event so we can try our best to accommodate your needs. Please also communicate with our caterers onsite should you have any questions regarding any of the foods being served.
All BMG events are designed to maximize networking rather than listening to speakers like most typical conferences. We DO NOT ever have speakers and never pay for speakers to speak at our events. Having said that, all attendees will be required to do a short 5-7 minutes” TANKTalk” presentation to people at their table. This will be your opportunity to share your unique experiences and expertise.
Unlike most conferences and events, BMG does not accept sponsorships. Why? Because the most awesome aspect about BMG is for its sales and pitch-free environment. We never look for sponsors for our events as we do not want to steal precious time from YOU - who have invested to be at our event because you don't want to be pitched to. At BMG, we like to remain neutral and support all the brands and businesses of all our community members.
As much as our BMG events may appear like a "goofy fun party" - please note that this is a full-blown + serious professional networking event specifically curated for entrepreneurs and founders. It is set in a very "chillaxed" and social tone... But it is NOT for the faint of heart or individuals who are easily offended, overly reserved and unwilling to be open, transparent and even vulnerable.
To help us maintain and honor the integrity, chemistry and quality of our events, please refrain from sharing this event publicly or with others without the approval from the hostess.
The last thing we want is to have to turn people away due to incompatible culture or chemistry.
Should there be any other Cool Cats you wish to invite who you believe to fit the profile of what we're looking for at BMG, please contact Madame Williams (aka. Sandra Fan) to ensure it is the right fit and for us to send them a formal invitation.
OR you can simply nominate them by going HERE.
Any questions regarding any of the items mentioned, please feel free to contact us HERE.
