Speakers at CATE 2017

About the Sessions

Regular sessions are workshops. There are seven time slots (Session A, Session B, etc.) and multiple choices. Super sessions are workshops by some of our favorite presenters that will guarantee enough seating for everyone, and they have their own time slot, so everyone can attend. Major speakers give speeches during meal events, which attendees can attend by purchasing a meal ticket, or by coming to the venue 30-40 minutes after the meal has been served to sit in the back to hear the speaker. There are five major speakers this year.


Super Session seating is guaranteed!
