This year’s event, “Building Resilience,” will cover the many changing elements of online life, for ourselves, our families, and our world. The inherent obstacles and vast benefits of the digital world have become apparent to all of us now more than ever, and we look forward to the new challenge of examining these issues against the backdrop of a quickly changing social and cultural landscape.
We look forward to welcoming you to a virtual space where you can benefit from high-level conversation with experts, learn more about the innovative solutions from leading companies, and network with other attendees from around the globe.
