Nope! Once you are registered for Elevate, you’ll be able to access all the sessions within the platform. You do have the option within Goldcast to add each session to your calendar, yet this is not required to enter the session.

Our agenda is finalized for this year and we are not accepting any additional speakers. However, we will be launching a call for speakers for Elevate 2022 in the new year.
