Global Accelerator Network (gan.co)

This site is plagued with the same problems a lot of other sites have today.

Lots of fancy visuals and moving parts but took me far too long to get what I needed.

Especially this huge circle expending automatically the left divs is extremely surprising and annoying. The worst part is that it doesn't give any more information. Just repeating the number in the div title...

It looks interesting but I am still not sure if this is about conferences or if it's an accelerator or something else.

I clicked on it thinking it's some sort of content delivery network. After looking at the homepage, I still have no reason to believe otherwise.

I think this page http://gan.co/the-network would have been a better landing page. As others have mentioned I thought this was someone giving a content delivery network a hype-y flashy new name

It took me a few minutes to understand what this is. You may want to rethink the structure and language of the site.
