Microsessions

Supersize your conference learning when you drop by for one of our microsessions. Each session will be tiny in terms of size and time, but huge on information and insight; so don’t miss out!

What is a Microsession?

Packing information and insight on a topic into a fifteen-minute segment, microsessions provide additional insight from a concurrent session or expound upon a specific tool, element, process, etc. These educational sessions are less formal and shorter than concurrent sessions, typically offering 7-10 minutes of content and 5-8 minutes for Q&A.

All microsessions will be held in the Microsession Theater inside the Expo Hall.
