How does the on-demand content work?

While the main three-day agenda will be presented live, there will be access to several on-demand sessions available through the event app. These sessions will be available to view once the event app (and desktop site) are made public a week prior to the conference. Additionally, all live sessions will be recorded and available on-demand through the event app (and desktop site) same day.

What else will we be able to do on the event app and when can we access it?

The event app (and desktop site) will act as the event dashboard for attendees. The app will provide peer-to-peer networking opportunities, update notifications, sponsor interaction, and live discussions. The app will be available to download to all registered delegates approximately one week prior to the event start date. Attendees will receive an email when the app is ready to download/access.
