While we wade back into “the new normal” of large, in-person events, we’re continuing to stream the premium SMX content you know and love directly to your computer. No plane ticket or time out of the office required.
3. On-demand access.
Whether your schedule is a bit more chaotic than usual, you’re in a different timezone, or you just can’t make time during the workday — it doesn’t matter. We’re offering both live and on-demand viewing so you can train at your convenience.
