After a long day at the conference center, take a 15 minute ride on our party bus to Continuum’s world headquarters in West Newton, MA! You will have the unique opportunity to see our studio space, which includes project story displays, experiential modeling shop, trend library, hospital room, and a tech lab. You’ll also get a sneak peek into our other studios around the world. Sip on a few signature cocktails and chat with our team members before heading back out on the tour (courtesy of our shuttle bus) to visit another open studio hot spot. Bus space will be limited so be sure to get to the bus early!
Localize will be held at the New England Research & Design Center (NERD). NERD is located on the Charles River, boasting killer panoramic views of the Water, Boston’s skyline, Cambridge and beyond. Oh yeah… it also has a pretty sweet interior space. There will be an open bar serving up beer, and wine, and Keyshot’s signature beer, ice cold PBR! Best of all everyone can enter to win our raffle overflowing with lots of great prizes and gear from sponsors and speakers.
