Mark your calendars for May 2 thru May 4th next year! The 2021 convention and exposition is on its way, and will be held at the Paradise Point Resort in San Diego, CA. After a long Covid lockdown, it's a great opportunity to meet and network with industry professionals, old friends and create new business relationships. 

The 2021 convention will be filled with surprises and a different format to add value. After all, we've had plenty of time to work on maximizing your experience. Here's a sneak peak on what to expect:

Her popular TEDx Talk challenges whether Millennials will be the next great generation, and has taken her to stages around the world.
