And roll-up your sleeves for workshops between panel discussions on:

A registrant may transfer their registration to another SharpHeels event (within the next two years) or transfer the registration to another person with at least 72 hours’ notice.  An attendee may also switch from a standard ticket to a virtual ticket within 72hrs of the event date (and may upgrade (+$100) from a virtual ticket to a standard ticket within 72 hrs of the event date as long as capacity allows for the change).

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures for our attendees, our speakers, and our staff.  And will continue to evaluate new health and safety measures as they become available from health experts and government officials. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space, by attending our event, you voluntarily assume all risks of exposure to COVID-19.
