We are finalizing this list. Check back in a couple weeks to view the complete list of Speakers and Sessions.
Yes! There are sessions for kids, teens, and adults. There is also childcare available for those not yet old enough to attend sessions.
We highly recommend each member of a family attend the sessions designed for their age group. This would allow everyone to gain the most from the experience. All sessions are in the same vicinity so no one will be too far and there is a 15-minute break between each session that would allow parents to check in on their children as needed.
Trained nurses will be present in the kids and teens rooms in case of any emergencies as well as to assist with any management as needed. Each breakout room will also have a “Low Station” for those who need it.
