New for 2017
MINIBYTES are 15-minute presentations by one speaker on a focused topic. MINIBYTES will be offered during all three days of Convention. MINIBYTES—little time, fast learning, big impact!
Monday MINIBYTES: 312 & 314 | Tuesday MINIBYTES: 612 | Wednesday MINIBYTES: 911 & 912
With the new Convention app, you'll have the convenience of finding daily schedules, creating your own schedule with the learning sessions you want to explore, accessing handouts, speaker bios, and more—right on your phone or tablet! The link to the app will be sent to registrants prior to the Convention. Sponsored by Ideacom Mid-America.
Need a quiet moment to refresh, a peaceful spot to pray, or a tranquil place to meditate? Convention is full of energy, learning sessions, people, and vendors—and you may need a place to reenergize. This year, we have the Reflection Room, a quiet space designated specifically for reflection, meditation, and prayer.
Open during regular Convention hours
