Where can I find the agenda?
On each event page, we will have a brochure or agenda available for download, depending on where we are in event planning. Full agendas are typically released two to three months prior to the event, though we send topics, panels, and keynote announcements all year long. Make sure you are getting updates via email by joining our event waitlists or downloading the event brochures.
Where can I find room block information?
Kayo reserves room blocks at each luxury host hotel we select for our events (because who has time to worry about being comfortable?) Room blocks are limited and tend to sell out quickly. Hotels are listed on each event page, and “how to book your room” instructions will be sent after you register.
When will I have digital access to the event details?
Attendees should expect to get access approximately one to two weeks ahead of the event, though this will vary slightly per event, to either an app or alternative digital platform that will contain the event details and attendee list.
