12Sessions

If you’re registered for WPC 2014, you can now get serious about your time at the conference and build out your personal schedule with both networking meetings and sessions. The Session Scheduler in WPC Connect went live last week.

This year, the US Partner Team will deliver 11 sessions, and the United States Regional Keynote, at WPC. All of our sessions, and the keynote, are on Tuesday, July 15. I’ve provided the list of session titles below with their associated track and session number for reference.

  • Registered attendees: add these sessions to your WPC Schedule by signing in to WPC Connect, then clicking this link or filtering on Partner Type > US Partner from the right side of your Connect screen.
  • If you’re not yet registered, you can see the US sessions list and descriptions in the Session Catalog here.

I would also like to invite all US partners who are registered for WPC to join me in the United States group in WPC Connect. The group is available to you from your Groups menu. See the screenshot at the bottom of this post for more information.
