November 1-6, 2017,  GiGi’s Playhouse National Office welcomed 260 attendees from 47 cities and 2 countries to the 2017 Bigger, Better, Stronger Together GiGi’s Playhouse International Conference!  

“I do not know how to describe the energy behind the 5 day, Bigger Better Stronger Together, conference other than it lived up to its name!!!!  I am exhausted, energized and ready to go! We had 70 facilitated sessions by amazing staff members, volunteers, and outside speakers!!  Our interns from Hugs and Mugs introduced speakers and they were amazing! Our Saturday was kicked off with an amazing speech from Intern, Kiera and her hard work and dedication to GiGi’s Playhouse was evident and inspiring to all.  This year I invited some local big donors to see what it is all about and they were blown away!!  We are legit!!  It was so cool to take over the entire Hyatt Regency!!”

-Nancy Gianni, Chief Belief Officer & GiGi’s Mom.

The GiGi’s Playhouse Cleveland team has arrived back home feeling inspired and motivated to set their 2018 goals! The GiGi’s network across the US and Mexico brought a wealth of knowledge and ideas. What an amazing conference!

The conference focused on the fact that we are bigger better and stronger together when all GiGi’s locations work as a team. When this happens the message, awareness, and impact of programming can reach more. We all came back re-energized and ready to implement the things we learned which includes planning for the upcoming year.
