Elevate Your View: 2018 Data Summit

Guided by community data experts, Elevate is a mountaintop data immersion experience like no other. Collaborate with peers, learn from interactive data workshops, develop expertise in leading data visualization software, and return to your OPO with a custom performance dashboard built by YOU!

Fly in to Denver International Airport on Monday and take the A Line Rail directly to Denver’s Union Station (more info on transportation). We suggest you slumber nearby; the train up to Winter Park leaves early the next morning and waits for no one! The Crawford Hotel is situated right inside the recently renovated Union Station, and will eliminate the need for a Tuesday morning commute (more info on lodging).

The Tuesday morning train will depart promptly at 8:05, whether you’re on it or not. Coffee and bagels will be served on board. Sit back and enjoy two hours of scenic views while you catch up with peers in the Lounge Car. The summit will begin with registration and lunch at the Vintage Hotel, followed by an agenda packed with informative panels and interactive data-focused sessions (more info on agenda).

After the session wraps, check in to your room and take a couple of hours to unwind. You’ll need your energy and wit for Connections: A Mountainside Lodge Networking Event in the Hill House, just steps from the Vintage Hotel (more info on Connections coming soon). Festivities will begin at 7:30, and feature heavy appetizers, fireside s’mores and toasty beverages until 9:30.

By Thursday morning, you may have your dashboard built but unrefined and want a bit more support to polish it up before presenting to your team back home. Perhaps you’ve enjoyed getting to know Tableau, but you’re also interested in how OPOs are using other data visualization and analytics solutions, such as SSRS and Power BI. Or it might just so happen that your dashboard is built and the only thing more beautiful than its design is the glistening snow calling you to Winter Park’s Seven Territories. After joining us for breakfast from 7:00-8:00 pick your preferred terrain (more info on Thursday Terrain)!

  • Explorer Trail: See some of the amazing work done by other OPOs in using their data in different tools to maximize donation. Then keep up the good work in a supported dashboard working session.
  • Adventure Run: Head up the gondola to the base of Winter Park Resort and ski the day away. Just make sure you’re back in time to catch the train back down the mountain!
