What does the event will look like for digital-only ticket holders? How will the experience be different to the in-person event?
If you join us remotely you can expect to plug into our live event being held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA). You’ll soak up insights from the live-streamed keynote talk.
What does the in-person day look like? How does it look different to digital-only?
If you are joining us for our live event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, you’ll soak up insights from live keynote talks IRL!. It will be a similar format to our previous in-person events, with some networking time in the morning and after the event.
Will the conference be multi or single-track?
We are returning to our pre-pandemic, single-track format this year. There will be some optional sessions and activities during the breaks (spotlight talks, Q&As, speed networking, etc.), details will be confirmed much closer to the day.
Why are the digital-only tickets cheaper than in-person tickets?
Putting it simply, running a physical conference just costs more money than a digital-only event, and this is reflected in the price. We also have a much smaller limit on the amount of people we can host at our in-person venue this year, however not all of our in-person costs map to this smaller audience. In no way does the difference in price reflect the quality of your experience.
Will there be workshops in conjunction with the conference?
We will be running pre-conference workshops on June 13. Tickets typically sell out very quickly, they are now on sale, make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. You can learn more about what will be on offer here.
Who is speaking at the conference?
We are currently working on an impressive line-up of speakers with a wide range of experiences. Some of the speakers you will be familiar with and know very well, others will be less known and you might not have heard of until now. We try to balance a range of voices in the industry from world-renowned voices to deeply practical stories from those actively in roles like you. Learn more about each speaker here.
Is there a schedule for the event day?
We are in the middle of planning the structure and content for our event. You can see the schedule for the day here, more details to come soon.
Will you release the topics that will be presented before the conference?
We aim to share the topics being covered by our keynote speakers a couple of weeks before the conference. However, this is a fast-moving industry and we allow speakers to alter their talks up to the last minute to ensure we have the most relevant content. We will also be publishing talk titles and talk descriptions for our breakout speakers before the conference.
To get an indication of what to expect, you can see talks from our past conferences here.
Is there a new mother’s area at the conference?
If you’re a new mother, we’ve got a private room set aside just for you at the conference venue with power, but no refrigeration. Just get in touch with the team and let us know if you need it!
