This year’s UP Summit brought 530 people from across the globe to Downtown Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

In it’s fourth year, the UP Summit was by far our largest one yet, almost tripling in size from last year’s Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The event was composed of multiple experiences, both learning experiences and fun adventures. Our Community Leaders got to have intimate discussions, listen and participate in workshops lead by the community, as well as skydive, trapeze, horseback ride, and explore the Hoover Dam – just to name a few!

UP Summit is our biggest event each year and our greatest opportunity to bond with the community – it was such a pleasure for me to organize a memorable experience for everyone. A special thank you to Work In Progress, a Downtown Project initiative, who sponsored our event and is the reason why we were so inspired to bring it to Downtown Las Vegas. Also, thank you to the Community Leaders who ran Learning Sessions and to our entire community for being so wonderfully energetic and excited, despite the Nevada Desert heat!

I look forward to seeing everyone in 2015 – wherever in the world we may be!
