Two Ways to Participate
Attend the conference in person and take advantage of on-site opportunities to connect with industry peers and regulators and meet on-on-one with FINRA staff.
Participate via live broadcast
Those who can’t attend the conference in person can participate via live broadcast streamed over the Internet. All sessions will be video or audio broadcast live. Participants can choose a session to follow along, and can toggle between all other live sessions as they like. And since recordings will be made available after the conference, participants can catch up on any sessions they missed. Online participants receive access to all conference materials, and can ask questions in real time.
