Government employees, save your seat today and lock in Early Bird savings

As a governmental employee, no one stands to benefit more from all ASCEND has to offer than you. But with governmental budgeting restrictions that mandate purchases no sooner than one month before expenditures—reserving a front row seat to history can be tough for public servants like yourself, particularly when the lowest rates occur early in the buying cycle.

Reserve your seat at ASCEND today and we’ll hold it for you at today’s prices until the day of the event.


Save more when you register as a team

Want to send several people from your company to ASCEND? We offer affordable group pricing of ten or more so that your team can participate together in relevant sessions or divide and conquer, sharing takeaways later.

Offer valid for All-Access Passes. Groups must consist of employees of the same organization. Group Registration Rates cannot be combined with any other offers. Time-based registration offers, such as early bird, are still applicable.

Justification Letter

You’ve made a great choice by deciding to attend ASCEND, 16-18 November 2020 in Las Vegas, NV. But upper management, well, they might need some convincing. Fortunately, we make that part easy.

We’ve developed a Business Justification Letter template just for you. It’s a breakdown of the Conference’s key value proposition and other details we think will show your boss how beneficial the Conference is to you and your organization. Simply copy and paste this letter into an email, and you’ll be one step closer to your front row seat.
