Our conference begins in just a few days. Sched is a great tool that you can use to create your conference schedule. It will also provide you with information on speakers and exhibitors. You can also locate the conference center map through Sched. If you are using Sched on a mobile device, you also get the option to save it to your home screen.
Two great ways to keep up with the conference are by following the discussion on Twitter using #wemta17 or by following our Facebook page.
Volunteers are still needed to help with our conference. Check out these opportunities.
We hope to see you there!
