Mobile App

We will send all registrants an invitation to our mobile app a few weeks before the event. You can also visit your App Store and search "Brandon Hall Group" to download the app. The mobile app is the best way to find sessions and speakers you want to hear from, as well as sponsors and attendees that you’re interested in meeting. There is a QR code on every name badge and scanner on the app to help you network and swap contact information with fellow attendees.


Search through the session list to find breakout sessions you want to attend. Then set up bookmarks, add to your event calendar, or set up app reminders to get to a session early.


Historically, the weather around this particular time of year is high 78 / low 61.
