On day one, visionaries from our industry - and some from outside - will be shunning the screen and keyboard to whisper of their insight and experience.
We'll be hearing from these great speakers :
At lunch, feast your eyes and appetite with a gastronomic cruise down the river Seine, catered by the world-renowned "Maison Le Nôtre".
Rendez-vous at the Salons Vianey, directly on the banks of the river Seine.
In contrast to the first day, speakers will shun the slide deck and "show, rather than tell" throughout this hands-on technical second day.
Amazing demonstrations from :
We'll restore ourselves at the legendary Train Bleu brasserie for a hearty serving of frivolous decadence. Snails may be on the menu ...
We'll be live from the RATP's HQ in the 12th arrondissement.

"La Conf was a special experience. I was entertained, inspired, enlightened, and filled with delightful food. I'm looking forward to attending again!"
"I had such a tremendous time at La Conf 2013. Oh, and the food. And the accordion music -- how could I forget the accordion music?"
