• Ryan Smith, Founder and CEO of Qualtrics (leading provider of online survey software for data driven decisions)

5:40pm: General admission opens. You are encouraged to bring a print-out of the email confirming that you are on the RSVP list for the event, as a back up. You are also encouraged to arrive as close to 5:40pm as possible, as lines to clear security downstairs can get long, and it takes a few minutes to get upstairs. When you clear security, please proceed to the 6th floor lobby, and then find your way through the Bloomberg kitchen to the staircase that will lead you to the 7th floor events room. As a reminder, there will be no walk-ins allowed.
5:45pm: Pre-event networking and drinks start.
6:15pm: Talks start (you need to get to the Bloomberg building way before that time to clear Bloomberg security downstairs, as lines can get long)
7:00pm: Admission closes. No attendees will be able to access the event after this time, even with an RSVP. Due to restrictions from the venue outside our control, we may occasionally have to close admissions earlier, so you are strongly encouraged to arrive as early as possible to guarantee admission.
8:10pm: Talks end, post event networking starts
9pm: event ends.
