How do I register?
Registration is now open. Complete the registration form and you will then gain access to sign up to as many sessions as you would like. Some of the experience sessions may require additional registration and be subject to a waiting list, as we expect demand for these to be high.
If I can’t attend all the live sessions, may I view online sessions at a later time?
Yes, we will be recording all online sessions. You will get access to session videos on-demand, so if you can’t make a live session, you won’t miss a thing.
What timezone is the event running into? What about languages?
The event is ‘timezone agnostic’. Unlike an in-person conference, you won’t be confined to session tracks and linear programming. We encourage you to dip in and out of what tickles your taste buds. There will be content available consistently over the 72 hour period.
We describe the festival as timezone busting and will feature sessions from all of the world: US, UK, Europe and APAC. It will also feature some selected content in French, German and Spanish language, although the majority of the event be in English language.

During the sessions
What if I want to attend a session in a different time zone?
Unlike a conference, you won’t be confined to single session tracks and linear programming. We encourage you to dip in and out of what tickles your taste buds.
Can I get a copy of the slides being used in the online presentations?
Yes. Not all sessions will have slides, but where they do we will provide FREE slide decks of each presentation available in our “video on demand page.” This will allow you to come and go as you please.
How long are the sessions?
This varies per session – some are deliberately short and snappy, others will be more in-depth. We recommend registering for multiple sessions and dipping in and out as your time allows.
How can I ask questions during the Festival? Will my question be answered during the presentation?
To minimize background noise, participant microphones are muted during the presentation, but participants can interact with the presenter through the chat/question and answer feature available during the presentation. Presenters will answer as many questions during the presentation as time allows or may follow up with individuals post presentation.
Can others attend with me?
An unlimited number of people can listen in on the online presentation with you at your location, or even better- encourage your colleagues to register and choose their own agenda.
Will I see the presenter or instructor?
Not unless they have a webcam and choose to share it, but you will hear the presenter in real time while you view his/her presentation.
