Our Friday and Saturday workshop series offers something for everyone. You are not required to select the sessions you will attend when you register. Descriptions of the workshops will be available in our mobile app, available prior to the conference, as well as our program book, available on-site.
The registration desk will open and a continental breakfast and beverages will be available at 7am. Lunch is not included in the registration; you may purchase the conference lunch, pack your own, or take advantage of one of the two on-site restaurants.
Please note that this page is updated to reflect workshop additions and speaker cancellations as they happen. This list may not match what was listed at the time the brochure went to press.
