What is RaterFest?
RaterFest! is our annual weekend "unconference." It's hosted at Rocky Mountain Village - a gorgeous, quiet camp tucked away in the Rocky Mountains.
We spend each day in a sunny conference room hearing from some of the best minds in our industry. By evening, we hang out around the campfire, enjoy Colorado craft beer, while sharing stories and music.
All eligible attendees earn CEUs from RESNET® , BPI, and ICC®.
RaterFest! is Possible Thanks to our Sponsors!
