COVID-19 Update

On-site? Online? On Mars?

The 2020 live and in-person launch of ASCEND in Las Vegas was thrown off course by Covid, but landed successfully online last November with more than 3,000 attendees from around the world participating in the inaugural three-day program.

This year, as vaccines roll out and venues open to host live events again, the 2021 edition is being planned as a hybrid blend of online presentations and face-to-face on-site gatherings (still on Earth). While details are being finalized, be assured our singular focus is on ensuring everyone’s safety, comfort and access to the optimal ASCEND experience this November. RSVP to receive updates as they become available.
