How can I register?

Where do I select my sessions?

When you begin your registration online, you will first select the ticket of your choice. Once this registration is complete, you will receive one email with the registration confirmation and a second with the invoice/receipt. Approximately 1-2 business days later you should receive a third email with the link to our event hosting platform, Bizzabo. In Bizzabo, you can select your sessions for the remainder of the week.

Bizzabo is accessible from a desktop device or a mobile device (via app), which makes connecting with, and participating in, the event much easier. With this app you can view and select/change sessions at any time (based on availability), connect with the trainers and community members, access accompanying training materials, submit keywords via survey to obtain CPE and much more.

If you do not receive the email with the Bizzabo platform link and/or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are happy to assist you with the process.
