- Bringing back workshops (there will be three), which were very popular last year, for more in-depth learning and to dive deeper into topics that require more time

- The addition of three speaker Q&A sessions – attendees can ask their most pressing questions witth selected speakers after their talks and glean more insights

- Free books – copies of ITT Revolution's latest additions to its publishing library will be offered, including signed copies of Mark Schwartz's "A Seat At The Table" and Dominica DeGrandis' "Making Work Visible"
