Forum 2020 Schedule

APRIL

27-29

Three days packed wall-to-wall with killer keynotes and how-to sessions — nothing but concrete ideas and actionable strategies you can implement immediately.

ABOUT THE SCHEDULE

How to Maximize Your Time

All attendees are welcome in every breakout session — no need to sign up in advance. And don’t worry about making hard choices about which sessions to attend. With a Gold Pass, you can watch video recordings of all keynotes and breakout sessions whenever you like. You don’t have to worry about missing anything — watch the sessions again when you get back to the office.

What Nights Should You Stay?

To get the most out of the Forum 2020 experience, we strongly recommend you book your stay at the Aria Hotel Resort in Las Vegas starting the night of Sunday, April 26th so that you don’t miss Jay Leno’s performance and the opening keynote on Monday. We also recommend you book your stay through Wednesday night, checking out Thursday, April 30th.
