INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis-based Lessonly has announced plans for its inaugural two-day tech conference in downtown Indy. The company says Yellowship will center around "team learning, productivity and performance."

The conference will take place April 17-19, 2018 at the Mavris Arts and Event Center in Indy. Lessonly Chief Executive Officer Max Yoder says he expects the event to draw around 250 tech leaders and professionals from throughout the country.

"This is more than just a world-class conference, it’s about fellowship—leaders from all sorts of industries connecting and growing," said Yoder. "The conference byline says it all: learn together, win together. That collaborative team spirit is integral to Yellowship."

Lessonly says one of the goals of Yellowship is to continue to grow the city's reputation as a tech hub in the Midwest. The conference takes the place of ExactTarget's Connections conference, which brought in millions of tourism dollars to Indy before it was moved to New York in 2015.
