Pre-Conference Workshops, March 20

Pre-conference Workshops are in-depth sessions designed to build a solid foundation of knowledge in critical topics. Through a combination of demos, lecture, discussions, and Q&A, you’ll develop a comprehensive understanding of important topics.

Your workshop registration fee gives you access to two information-packed sessions; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You'll leave both sessions with all the presentation materials, demos, handouts, and any other resources that are prepared by the instructor.

You’ll also leave with greater knowledge and confidence, and you'll be ready to go further in-depth on these topics throughout the rest of the event.
