@LeahK Has the agenda builder gone live yet?  Just want to make sure my team didn't miss out on an email as we're about halfway through the month!  Thanks for your help!

Alteryx Alumni (Retired)



The Agenda Builder for this year's conference will be available exclusively through the Mobile App, which is scheduled to go-live later this month. Please note, that adding sessions to your personal schedule within the app does not guarantee you a spot.  Seating onsite will be on a first-come first-serve basis.


We will post a Mobile App guide on the Buzz, as soon as its available. Registered attendee's will also receive an email with instructions. 





We do not have an Excel file with all the breakout sessions at this time. You can however, browse all available sessions on the Inspire Agenda page.

Hi Leah,


Am I interpreting your response correctly in that no attendee will be able to "register" for a breakout session, as we did in past years (guaranteeing us a spot)?  All breakout sessions are completely first come/first served this year?

We have the same understanding.
