The 2017 Annual Summit is officially rescheduled for December 13 & 14!


The MetroLab team is happy to announce that we have new, rescheduled dates for the 2017 Annual Summit! Please mark your calendars for December 13-14, 2017. We plan to keep much of the agenda in-place and, over the next few weeks, will be reaching out to speakers and presenters to confirm participation. We do recognize that these dates may not work for everybody and some adjustments will need to be made. Please keep an eye on our website for updates.


*Subject to change, please check back frequently for updates.
