Before you attend, we encourage you to determine which sessions are of interest and to add them to your personalized itinerary under the “My Itinerary” tab.

Find a session you wish to add to your itinerary and click “Add to Itinerary”. During the event, navigate to this tab, and select “My Itinerary” at the top for easy access to the sessions you selected and to launch your session(s).
