What is the attire of the event?

We recommend business casual attire for BeyondTheBlack sessions and the Sponsor Welcome Reception.

Our Tuesday evening networking event themed as ‘Stay Classy, San Diego’ will be held at the pool deck at the Hyatt. In an homage to the movie Anchorman, we encourage you to dress in your best 1970s California chic!

The BlackLine Bash on Wednesday evening will be held on the flight deck of the USS Midway. This will be an outdoor event so check the weather forecast when you’re packing. We recommend nice, casual attire, and please be sure to wear flat, comfortable shoes—as this is an authentic aircraft carrier, absolutely no high heels are allowed.
