It was another amazing year for Maritime DevCon 2017 and we want to start our recap with a massive THANK YOU to every single speaker, sponsor, attendee and organizer. We have already started to talk about what we can do better for next year and if you want to have your say, make sure you fill out our Maritime DevCon 2017 Survey.
The start of the day was early for all us organizers and the UNB Conference Services team as we setup the Wu Centre once more. We love the amazing customer service and superb facilities that we always experience with this awesome team, so our thanks for the day start here.
We also have to give a big shout out and thank you to Cvent and the team from the Cvent Fredericton office for running our registration once again this year. It was quick, painless and started the morning off right!
Derek kicked off the day with the opening remarks including giving a big shout out to our sponsors who are beyond generous with their amazing support! In case you missed it, we want to send out another huge THANK YOU to our sponsors:
Teledyne CARIS Inc.
Pumped up with excitement and coffee, our attendees enjoyed getting the day kicked off with our morning sessions.

We again have to send our biggest thanks out to the amazing staff at UNB Conference Services and the Wu Centre. Truly superior customer service and feeding over 160 people is no easy task!

In our final block of sessions for the day we had Brian Dunphy speak on the Rise of the Anti-Manager: “Managing” and Growing Tech Talent. Check out his slides here.
We want to thank all of our speakers for joining us and presenting their sessions. This event would not be possible with each of them. If you are thinking about speaking next year and have any questions about it, please feel free to reach out.
Door Prizes/Closing Remarks
After a busy day of networking and sessions, we closed out our day by giving away some t-shirts and door prizes, plus Brian managed to get in one last laugh at Derek’s expense which is saved forever on our Facebook Live recording. Big thank you to Rick Wightman for making The Randominator to use for our draws!

In true Maritime DevCon fashion we closed out another year with a little after party hosted by the great team at Brewbaker’s Bar. Our biggest thanks to them for hosting us!
With that, we have wrapped another year in the books of Maritime DevCon. We are very encouraged by this year’s event and can’t wait to see how we can make next year even better. You can help us by giving your feedback in our Maritime DevCon 2017 Survey.
THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING, SPEAKING, SPONSORING AND SUPPORTING MARITIME DEVCON!
