What are the dates?

The in-person portion of the 2022 Conference was held Wednesday, November 9th while the
virtual portion of the Conference was held on held on Thursday, November 10th.

Why are there two separate events?

In these times, we recognize that people have different needs and preferences around health and safety. So, based on feedback from our community, we want to provide both options to meet the needs of as many people as possible. 

What are the benefits of the hybrid option – that is, attending both the in-person and the virtual events?

The virtual (“Conference Anywhere”) event is our core offering. It provides the full Conference experience and will give attendees the opportunity to be inspired by world-class keynote speakers, learn practical strategies about leadership and career advancement from top experts, get personalized answers to your questions, network, and take advantage of many other learning opportunities. 

The in-person event allows people who are ready to gather in person the opportunity to do that. Attendees will have the chance to hear from an additional set of keynote speakers, explore our new interactive hall, and enjoy a picnic lunch.

What is the dress code for the in-person event?

As in past years, we expect most attendees to arrive in business casual attire.

What health precautions will be taken at the in-person event?

Attendees are asked to confirm the following upon receipt of their Attendee Badge:

–  That they are fully vaccinated, and/or
–  That they can produce a copy of a negative rapid test taken within 48 hours of the in-person Conference day, and
–  That they are not experiencing any COVID symptoms

We ask that those who are experiencing any symptoms on the morning of November 9th please stay home, for the health of yourself and others.

For the 2022 in-person Conference experience, all speakers appeared in one two-hour keynote session. There were no breakout sessions.

For the virtual Conference experience, you do not need to choose your breakout session in
advance or tell us your choices. Instead, at the time of each session, you simply click on the
session of your choice.

Can I share my virtual registration with other people?

No. One ticket enables one person to watch from their personal computer or handheld device. This is an immersive and interactive environment that does not lend itself to group viewing. Also, please note that if two people log in with the same credentials, the system will block both.
