No, you only have to register for the summit once and you will gain access to all five summit sessions. Choose whichever presentations you want to attend. Whether you tune in for just one session or all five, you only have to register once.
I can't make one of the sessions. Will there be recordings available?

Yes! We will send recordings of each day’s session to all registrants. And recordings will be available for registrants to view for a month after the summit has ended.
