  • Each day’s MACRO visionary keynotes and follow-on META programming will originate from the ASCEND Caesars Forum stage.
  • Elevate your experience with Special Programming, such as lectures and other events/activities.
  • Meet face-to-face with peers and colleagues from around the world in the most state-of-the-art conference and exhibition facility in Las Vegas.
  • On-site meals and after-hours social and networking activities included in your registration will allow for a relaxed and casual continuation of the day’s conversations.

Harrah’s Las Vegas and The LINQ Hotel + Experience are the official event hotels for 2022 ASCEND. Both hotels offer direct access to Caesars Forum, making it easy for you to relax or take a meeting between sessions. We kindly ask that all attendees joining us in Las Vegas stay at these hotels.
