Episode 59: Behind the Iron + Mortar Summit

Iron + Mortar Summit

Ashley Loyer, Layci Nelson and Brenden Loyer wanted a business event for Box owners.

But, there was nothing in the industry that reflected what they had in mind. So, they decided to create what they wanted.

The Iron + Mortar Summit is what came out of their desire and hardwork. It’s going into its third year, taking place in June in Portland, Oregon.

Ashley and Nelson sat down with Box Pro’s Heather Hartmann on this episode of Box Talk to chat about the Summit. They highlight its unique points, the speakers coming this year, event tips and planning, and why Affiliates can benefit from attending.
