Networking

Our conference venue is packed with opportunities to network with peers and engage with colleagues.

Round Tables: Any participant can initiate mini-sessions, enabling you to foster group discussions on any topic or shared interest. 

Event Feed: This is a private social media channel for conference goers that is always available on your dashboard. Anyone can use the Event Feed to post comments, ask questions, issue Round Table invitations, and generally engage with the conference community.

Agenda

We have several tools to help you navigate our extensive five-day program. For starters, our platform will automatically convert all session times to match the time zone of your device, no need for manual time conversions, the system will make the conversions for you.

In addition, the My Program feature allows you to create your own personalized agenda. By highlighting your favorite sessions, your own agenda lets you cut through the background noise and focus on what matters to you.
