  • Hi Spencer,

    Thanks for bringing that broken link to our attention! Lots of things changing and coming together to make Universe happen. I have removed the link, as it was to take you to the page you see after registering. The sessions you aren't seeing currently are part of our Explore Zone. They aren't posted yet, but will be in the next couple of days so be on the lookout! See you there.

  • Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Spencer! I will inform the events' team and you will hear back from us soon!

  • Hi

    The link "Learn more about each session here." I get a 404 error.
