2017 Special Events

In addition to the technical sessions offered during the conference, there are special events you can join to enhance your conference experience.

If you've already registered for the conference, you can simply add these optional events to your existing registration by visiting the registration form and checking the box that says "I already registered for this year's event and would like to add an optional event to my registration."

Alternately, you can attend any of the training sessions without attending the full conference. View the registration page for fees and additional details.

All events (except for the offsite tours) will take place at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. Please contact I2SL with any questions.
