13th RMUE logo

We are not fans of event parachuters. You know those folks who register for the event but only appear for a few sessions or just the networking at meals and receptions. We encourage all attendees to set aside time to fully engage with the presenters and other attendees. If you must break away, we have 2-hour lunches to catch up on things back as the office and/or get some fresh air.

It's tough to get time away to contemplate broader industry issues and make new connections. We hope you make the most of their time together to learn and network in ways you can't do anywhere else but with us in Aspen.
