Converge Con 2019 Schedule

This schedule is subject to change.

Pre Conference Events

*These are pre conference events, run by the presenters. They are not a part of the Converge weekend, and tickets must be purchased separately. Ticket links are below.*

If you can’t wait for Converge to start, or are looking for some more in-depth learning, this is a great opportunity. Some of our speakers travel great distances to present at Converge, take advantage of their knowledge and proximity! This year there are two workshops happening Friday March 29th, before the conference starts.
