Expanded Visionary Leadership Awards - Tues, Oct 26
Last year we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the Summit with a scaled-down virtual celebration that tabled some of the more festive activities for the future. This year, the party is on during The Morries™ Visionary Leadership Awards. Join us as we honor this year’s award recipients and 11 years of the Summit in a lively environment offering refreshments, networking, compelling photo opportunities, dinner and entertainment from The Cyber Rocks Band!
The safety of our attendees will be our number one priority. To achieve our goal of an in-person Summit experience, we are building out new event protocols to keep attendees safe, following the guidelines of CDC and Minnesota’s Department of Public Health. As we finalize this preparedness plan, we will share information here, on our COVID-19 Update Log, as well as by email to ticket holders.
Through our partnership with vFairs, virtual attendees will enjoy an intuitive, Zoom-based platform with a range of features and functionalities:
  • Live session content
  • Build your own agenda
  • Interact with attendees and exhibitors
  • Virtual EXPO Hall
  • Scavenger hunt in EXPO Hall
  • Post-event access to session content for a month
To get a sense for the virtual environment we are building out, we encourage you to watch this brief vFairs demo video:
