A Unique Experience

No other conference shines a light this bright and this strong on the presentation experience


Successful presentations are about sharp messages, intelligent design, smart techniques, and poise before an audience.


We deliver insight, inspiration, and community to create a conference experience that you will remember forever.



Spend three days with us and immediately distinguish yourself from 99% of the people creating or delivering presentations today.

Whether you attend as a roomie or a Zoomie, our breadth of coverage, depth of expertise, willingness to help, and passion for creating engagement all add up to a business conference that is completely unlike any other you will attend.

Two phenomenal learning opportunities

Servicing two robust communities is a sacred obligation and hybrid won’t cut it any longer. So in 2023, you can choose to be a roomie, a Zoomie, or you can have your cake and eat it, too.
