The 2017 event was our first and we learned a lot. After reviewing the feedback we received we will be making the following changes:

  • One venue, one building
  • 9 tracks with 5 sessions in each track
  • Most sessions are 75 minutes long
  • 30 minutes long breaks between sessions to allow for more interaction between speakers, sponsors and attendees
