Conference in Greenville, SC

A conference for soft-handed computer folks where everyone has a voice.


It's time to awaken Grok.

This is the event that drew 1,000 people over 5 years and twenty three states and hosted some of the web industry’s best and brightest independent wrights and creators. We’re coming back as the un-conference for digitally excited thinkers: the designer opening her own small studio, the little guy working with Fortune 100 clients, the specialist doing big things by day and clever things by moonlight. The folks who have big questions and tuned ideas.

What is Grok? 


Grok is a gathering point for design and technology professionals. An intentional collision of highly skilled digital makers and the industries, opportunities, and problems, they can most powerfully tackle.

Specifically, it’s an event encouraging creative teams and individuals to think differently. The focus of Grok is the best/new ways to do things on the internet, but they’re intentionally pulling in creative non-creators.

So who should attend?

Digital makers who think differently and craftsman/craftswomen who are eager for different. In the past that’s looked like:

  • Corporate in-house designers and developers.

  • Non-Silicon Valley start-ups.

  • Entrepreneurs looking to find digital solutions to age-old non-digital problems.

  • Advertising agency design and technology leads.

Come prepared to be inspired and inspire others.



Grok is made possible in part by our sponsors. These are the folks who are helping us make Grok great, and we hope you get to know them (and their people!) well this year.


You may have a few questions.




Grok 2017 will be held on October 6 & 7th in Greenville, SC (but you already knew that second part).

What’s it gonna cost me?

General Admission tickets are $200 while supplies last. What happens if you wait? Roll the dice and see, muchacho.


What’s it like?

We plan to hold true to our past 10s and 20s setup. But we’ll be changing things up a little too (we can’t help it). It’ll be good though.



Who is this “we”?

Throughout the years the team steering the ship has changed here and there. For #grok17 we’re getting the band back together. The community of Atlas Local will be making this event as extension of our own community. We love it here, and we love you all. We’ve found the best moments of Grok are made with love.


Have a super weird question?
