Session Types

You'll experience 4 different session types at Connect:

Deep Dives

Held on Monday morning, these are intensive, pre-conference classes that focus on specific topics. These classes will give you more time to learn directly from an instructor in a classroom environment. Select your Deep Dive session in your dashboard.

Public Sector Summit

Get together with other EAM users in the Public Sector and learn from each other. You will have the chance to roundtable about the issues you face and the ways you have overcome obstacles. Register for the Public Sector Summit in your dashboard.


We’ll host mainstage sessions in the auditorium throughout the conference. Our mainstage sessions allow us to come together all at once and hear from a lineup of awesome speakers.


Learning in a classroom setting, you can pick classes from 4 different tracks on a variety of topics. You can jump from track to track, but be aware that seating is first come, first served so arrive to classes early.


We're still working on our Connect 2020 lineup. Get to know some of our awesome Connect 2019 customer and partner speakers in the meantime.
