Speaker Registration

If you’re the primary speaker for a session, you’re given a full-conference registration. Your first co-speaker is given a substantially discounted registration rate, and all further co-speakers must register at the full-conference rate. For more details, including information on registering for pre-conference activities, review the Speaker Registration page.

Hotel Information

DevLearn 2020 will be taking place at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. All speakers are responsible for making their own travel and hotel reservations, and we are offering a special reduced group rate at this hotel. We strongly recommend that all speakers stay where all conference activities will take place. Visit the Location and Lodging page for more information and booking.

Promoting Your Session

We highly recommend promoting your session on social media to help build a larger audience. For tips and images you can use, visit the Promoting Your Session page.

We’re excited to have you as a speaker and look forward to seeing you at the conference! If you need information you can’t find here, feel free to reach out to the program team by emailing programs@LearningGuild.com.
