You know what they say about all work and no play (and around here, we don’t do dull). So, when you’re ready to take your nose off the grindstone, here are some great ways to enjoy your spare time at NextCon.

SUNDAY, November 3

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Morning Hike Excursion with Kyle Maynard

Head to Scottsdale early to experience the amazing Sonoran Desert on a hike led by expert guide company, K2 Adventures Travel. The best part? You'll have an opportunity to get to know our incredible keynote speaker and extreme athlete, Kyle Maynard, as he hikes alongside you (learn more about Kyle’s incredible story here). Great for every fitness level. Transportation provided.
