We know that many people have other commitments or are in time zones that make participating live in the full conference challenging. We encourage participants to join live as much as possible and welcome your engagement at any point over the three days of the conference.

Recordings will be available through Friday, August 7th.

Our virtual platform will provide opportunities to network with YTH Live participants from across the world through video networking, live chat, and more. We will also offer a participant list through the virtual platform so participants can connect with each other after the event as well.
