Sessions and certifications
Do I have to pre-enroll for sessions?
Yes. You will need to pre-enroll to attend the labs and lectures. Enrollment will open following the release of the agenda. Enrollment is based on conference registration dates, so the first to register for Enfuse are the first able to enroll for sessions. You will receive an email notification announcing when you are able to enroll.
What will happen if I register late?
The majority of all attendees state that the labs are the number one reason that they attend Enfuse. Registering early is the best way to guarantee that you will get into all the sessions you want. Enfuse has several tracks, with more than 100 sessions to choose from, and we have increased the capacity in several classrooms this year to offer more opportunities to get into the sessions of your choice. If you register late, you will have the option to put your name on a waiting list located outside every session room. It is our goal to get everyone into the sessions of their choice in the most comfortable and safest way possible.
Can I change my sessions once I select them?
You can modify your selections at any time prior to the conference. You will need your email address and confirmation number to access your online registration. You cannot make same day changes on-site as the registration system is synced with the badge scanners each morning, but you can be added to a waitlist for a different session on-site.
I can't attend all the sessions that I want to, is it possible to get the handouts from all?
All the handouts and presentations provided by speakers will be available to all conference attendees. You will be provided with a link to download the presentations following the conference. Updated session materials will also be available at the print stations located in the conference hall.
Do I need to bring a laptop to sessions?
You may bring your own laptop for note taking purposes but session related materials will only be available on the computers we provide, specifically in the lab sessions.
Are there breaks in between sessions?
The schedule for Enfuse has been set up with a minimum of 15 minutes in between sessions to allow time to move to your next session. Several of the breaks for Enfuse have been expanded to 30, 60 or 90 minutes to allow time to visit the exhibit hall.
