Hive October 2016 Logistics


On October 6th, leaders like you from around the world will convene at the Innovation Hangar at the Palace of Fine Arts for three inspiring days of challenging ideas, meaningful connection and critical skills-building. We cannot wait to meet you — and for you to meet each other! But first, here are a few important answers to questions you may have as you prepare for your Hive Global Leaders Program experience:

Where is the venue?

When does the program begin?

The Hive Global Leaders Program will officially begin on Thursday October 6th at 7:00 PM at the Innovation Hangar. Doors will open at 6:00 PM for an optional welcome reception. The Innovation Hangar will be our primary venue for the duration of the program.

Can I get a detailed schedule?

We intentionally withhold a detailed schedule to create a cohesive experience for all of our participants; we want you to experience the weekend as we designed it. That said, we know you might want to visit friends in San Francisco or need to make travel arrangements so this is the daily time commitment:

Schedule by day

Thursday October 6th – 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (Dinner included)
Friday October 7th – 8:30 AM to 7:30 PM
Saturday October 8th – 8:30 AM to 11:00 PM (Dinner included)
Sunday October 9th – 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM
Monday October 10th – 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM (Optional post-Hive hangout; details TBD)

What do I need to do before I attend?

Upload your headshot and a little information about yourself that you’d like to share with your fellow participants. We’ll share the full attendee list prior to the program. Also, we don’t like getting caught up in legalese either, but all attendees are required to read and sign our release form before participating in the Global Leaders Program.

Get connected with other participants!

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to start connecting with your peers via the October 2016 Hive Facebook group. Follow the link, request an invite and we’ll add you to the group!

Do you have accommodation recommendations?

You can find available accommodations using our web portal here. We are proud partners of Hotels for Hope and encourage you to learn more about the work that they do.

What should I wear? What will the weather be like?

Bring layers, but think casual and relaxed — whatever is most comfortable for you! Clothing that allows for light yoga and stretching in the morning and some light outdoor activities is recommended but no need to bring athletic shoes or clothes. During the day, expect temperatures to reach anywhere between 60 – 75°F, with lows in the evening around 50 – 55°F.

Thank you again for your investment in yourself and in Hive! We’re hard at work to bring you the best possible Global Leaders Program in October and we are grateful that you are doing the same.
