TribalNet Conference & Tradeshow: Advisory Board Members Announced

LAS VEGAS, NV – TribalHub will celebrate 25 years in the industry at its annual TribalNet Conference & Tradeshow, taking place at the Westgate Las Vegas, September 16-19, 2024. The event offers a wide variety of learning sessions, keynote presentations, networking events and a two-day tradeshow.

The organization has announced its 2024 TribalNet Advisory Board, which provides input and direction to develop the agenda and speaker lineup for the annual TribalNet conference. The advisory boards are a representation of those in the audience each year at TribalNet.

“Each year that we’ve been able to host the TribalNet Conference & Tradeshow has been an opportunity to bring together an entire industry and provide a platform for connecting, learning, problem-solving, mentoring, growth and so much more,” said Shannon Bouschor, Director of Operations for TribalHub. “Celebrating 25 years for TribalNet this year, means celebrating 25 years of the evolution of technology at tribes and tribal enterprises and, more importantly, it means celebrating those who have been a part of that journey and the impact that they have made on their tribes and enterprises from maybe even just one year all the way to 25. Our advisory boards are a huge part of that. We are so excited to welcome old friends and new at this year’s event, which will surely be one to remember.”
