Buddy Match Meet & Greet Lunch

Quest COLLABORATE Attendees can be paired with another conference attendee through Quest’s “Buddy Match” Program. This is an ideal opportunity for first-time attendees to be paired with a conference veteran or for users looking to connect with someone in a similar job and/or industry.

Buddies will be introduced in early April giving plenty of time to meet and ask questions before the conference. Join us for lunch on Sunday so Buddies can meet in person before the conference even starts!

If you would like to participate, please email Dana.Maggard@questdirect.org

Quest For Good

Get to know other attendees while volunteering for a good cause! Help support Las Vegas students in Title 1 schools by assembling 1,000 Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Kits. It only takes a couple minutes to assemble each kit, allowing plenty of time to volunteer and attend a Quest Welcome Reception on Sunday night. As an added bonus, volunteers will be put into a drawing for a $100 donation to the charity of their choice (3 winners).
