What's on the program

Check out the full schedule and make note of which sessions and activities you want to attend over on the program page.

 

We know there are more conferences than you have time to attend, which is why we’ve designed Assembly to be different. We’ve created an experience over three days to bring honest, open conversations, deep listening, and meaningful connection.

Accessibility

The conference is surrounded by beautiful nature and you are able to step away to be surrounded by trees within just a few minutes.

All sessions are opt-in. You are welcome to participate in a way that works for you, and are free to come and go as you please.

 

We've also allocated the Waxflower room as a designated parents room and quiet space.

If you have any accessibility needs that you didn’t include when booking a ticket, please get in touch as soon as possible.
