This year’s theme is Connection. Our world is filled with people sharing ideas, collaborating with others, and building ways to bring things together. Some of our sessions will apply this to their topics, and as you walk the floor or share a meal we hope you’ll do the same with those around you.

The earliest available general admission tickets are $65, which include an “exclusive gift.” And from there you can score a t-shirt and reserved seating at the keynote, all the way up to the “purple” early bird ticket that includes a t-shirt, a reserved keynote seat, access to the express registration lane, lunch provided on both Friday and Saturday, admission to a special Friday networking event, and more.
