2021 Keynote Speakers

We’re incredibly proud to announce 4 world-class technologists and thought leaders as keynote speakers in 2021.

As we’ve said on so many occasions before, keynote speakers and the topics they cover establish big themes and set the overall pace of the conference. As a result, we feel they’re incredibly important.

The keynote block will start at 10:00 am ET on Tuesday, March 30 and will run until 11:30 am ET. It will include a 15-minute welcome from conference organizers (thank you’s and brief announcements), which will be followed by four 15-minute keynote talks.

Plan now to attend the keynote block and be sure to register if you haven’t already.
