How do I become a sponsor?

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.

What is your cancellation policy?

After purchasing a ticket, refunds are not available. However, tickets may be transferred to a colleague or we can issue a credit that can be used to a future event if notifications are received 72 hours before the event.

Is press allowed at Kayo events?

All Kayo events are closed to the press.

How do I reserve a hotel room?

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.


Hotel self-parking is currently available at Rowes Wharf in the underground garage managed by Laz Parking. Guests are permitted to leave and return to the garage within the day without any extra charge. Electric charging stations and car washes are available. Oversized vehicles with a height greater than 6′ 6″ will be directed to an offsite garage. Self-Parking, $49 daily. Valet parking currently unavailable.


Kayo Summits & Forums adhere to a business professional dress code. For Kayo Retreats, we recommend resort casual attire.
