Here’s Everything You Need To Know If You’re Attending HYPERGROWTH 2018 East On Tuesday

I can’t believe HYPERGROWTH East is actually here. It feels like we just announced that our annual conference would be held at the Blue Hills Pavilion in Boston on September 4th – and that felt far away.

And over the last year we’ve spent a lot of time making sure this HYPERGROWTH is bigger, better and frankly… a ton of fun. You’re going to love it and walk away having learned A LOT from our speakers.

But before we have fun, here’s all the logistics you need to know about HYPERGROWTH East.


1) When should I be there?

Doors open at 8AM and we’ll start the show at 9AM. There will be coffee, tea and snacks available when you arrive. Our Drift team will be wearing black HYPERGROWTH t-shirts and will check you in when you arrive.


2) How do I get to the Blue Hills Pavilion? 

The Blue Hills Pavilion is located in Boston’s Seaport district. The address is 290 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210.

If you are driving to the Blue Hills Pavilion, you can park at the Seaport Hotel or EDIC Garage.

Seeing as parking is expensive and limited, I’d recommend public transportation or Uber/Lyft.

If you are taking public transportation, your best bet will be to get on the MBTA’s Silver Line and get off at the Waterfront stop. You can get on the Silver Line from either South Station or Boston Logan Airport. The Silver Line might sound like a subway and look like it on a map because it has its own tunnel, but it’s really a bus (and yes, it’s silver). You can purchase a CharlieTicket for $2.75 per ride.

If you are taking a Lyft or an Uber, just plug in this address: 290 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210. Boston does have both Lyft & Uber and no matter your location around the city, it should be pretty fast and easy to find one.


3) Will there be food and drinks at the conference?

We’ll have coffee and snacks in the morning but if you’re a big breakfast person, make sure you fuel up before you arrive. The good news is that Boston has tons of diners, breakfast spot, and cafes around the city. Because Bostonians love breakfast too.

Lunch will be served at 12:30PM but we’ll also have snacks, coffee, water, and other beverages throughout the day.

And then it all ends with happy hour at 5:15PM (can’t wait) and then we’ll roll right there into the VIP after party (SOLD OUT).


4) Where can I find the agenda for the conference?

We will be releasing the hour-by-hour agenda Tuesday morning when the event starts. Since the conference is only one-day and one stage with thirteen speakers, you don’t need to worry about missing any speakers or shuffling between rooms. We’ve worked really hard to make sure this is one-day of learning (and fun) you will never forget. The times you should know beforehand are: arrive at 8AM, lunch is at 12:30PM, the conference ends at 5:15PM and there’s a VIP party after (SOLD OUT).

And that’s it. We’re so excited to meet everyone Tuesday morning. Wear comfortable shoes, enjoy yourself, don’t hesitate to ask any of the Drift team members a question. They are there to help.

If you have any other questions before the conference shoot us a message on chat. We’re here to help.
