As part of the ongoing management of our environmental and financial resources, we will be printing a limited number of programs for distribution upon request only at the Global Forum. The program will be an abridged version containing the schedule overview with session titles only (no descriptions). In early January, you will receive an email invitation to download our environmentally friendly mobile app that will contain all of the information you need to make the most of your time with us during the Global Forum.
