We'll be back at The Hatchery a week from today for a presentation from Ryan Frankel of VerbalizeIt which in November was named the winner of this year’s Most Innovative Startup Company at PhoCusWright's Travel Innovation Summit.

Event details are currently up but RSVP's are closed because we are awaiting confirmation that we have sponsorship. If not, there may be a small charge for attendance to cover venue and beverage costs. RSVP's are set to open tomorrow at 3PM. Click here for details:
