All sessions will also be available for on-demand playback until December 17th, so attendees can watch all twelve on their own time.


Do I have to choose the breakout sessions in advance?

No. The agenda will be posted on our website in advance of the Conference day. But you don’t need to choose or sign up in advance. At the time of each session, you will simply click on the session of your choice. Don’t worry, none of the sessions have capacity limits so you’re guaranteed access to the sessions you choose.


Is this a Zoom meeting?
