I have a prior commitment and am unable to stay the full day.
That's okay — we recognize our attendees may have schedule conflicts throughout the day. Thus, your ticket and name badge will grant you access to the event all day for your convenience. You are welcome to come and go throughout the entire event as needed. Check-in is also available throughout the entire event directly outside the auditorium doors.


Can I come during the middle of a session?
As a courtesy to our speakers and performers, as well as to our attendees, we encourage attendees to enter and leave the auditorium during the short breaks between each Talk. Check-in will be available throughout the entire event directly outside the auditorium doors.


What is the schedule for the day?
Each year, the schedule is finalized days before the event and is subject to change at any time. For the convenience of our speakers, the schedule is available within the app on the day of the event, as well as on the schedule distributed during check-in.
