Looking forward to this year’s Innovations in Testing Conference? Can’t wait to learn, network, and have some fun? We are inviting you to be a part of our Innovations in Testing Theme days to help make us feel like we are together, even though we are apart.

In the past year, we have learned that feeling of being together, networking, and having fun with colleagues we normally have onsite is hard to replicate in a virtual environment. BUT we are here to change that with a few new ideas! One of those ideas is to have theme days for this year’s conference to create a fun and more relaxed experience. Please plan to participate! We strongly encourage you to be creative! Together we can make Innovations in Testing much more engaging and FUN for all involved, even remotely!

Themes for each day:

Tuesday, April 27th - Wear your Innovations Thinking Cap

Wear your favorite hat, baseball cap, fun/crazy headwear, or anything that will help you get your brain going.

Wednesday, April 28th - Purple Pride

Show off your Innovations and true ATP pride - wear anything and everything purple!

Thursday, April 29th - Rep your Brand What makes you...you?

  • Wear apparel from your favorite college - could be a shirt, hat, sweatshirt, college colors, etc.
  • Wear something from your organization
  • Wear something for your favorite sports team, hobby, charity or cause

It’s important to stay hydrated!
