All over the world, Local Guides help millions of people navigate the world on Google Maps. To celebrate the superstars in our global community, Google is bringing together a select group of Local Guides Level 5+ for two and a half days of inspirational activities in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Announcing this year’s big event: Connect Live 2018!
Google Maps Team: On behalf of the Local Guides team, I’m excited to share that we’ll be hosting another event this year for top community members! For the past two years, we’ve held what we called the Local Guides Summit at Google in California.
This year, we’re changing things up a bit. Get ready for Connect Live 2018! It’s a new kind of event to honor our community’s diverse passions. Attendees will still have a chance to give feedback directly to Googlers. They’ll also get tips on topics like taking amazing photos, helping people with accessibility needs, and sharing discoveries.
As part of the change, we’re also being more inclusive this year when it comes to applications. All Local Guides level 5+ are eligible to apply for a spot. While attendance is limited to 150, we will have more opportunities than ever for Local Guides of all levels to feel like they’re a part of the excitement—before, during, and after Connect Live.
- Dates: October 16 — 18, 2018
