    It appears that all sessions on Thursday are already sold out. Are there any plans to add more sessions?

    Thank you

    Hi Meghan, 

    Thanks for the note. It looks like, as of right now, there are still a few last spots in two of the sessions on Thursday. We've activated wait lists and there's already been some movement from colleagues who have modified their registrations. Those sessions simply filled up the quickest. At the moment, there are no plans to add additional sessions for Thursday, but I'll mention the suggestion to the Summit team.
