Southern Tier YP Summit

October 15, 2020

What’s New

The YP Summit is not your average conference, especially this year! The day was re-designed to offer both virtual and in-person experiences, so you can enjoy the event from the comfort of your office, at home, or on-the-go. With the challenges that have affected society in 2020, we crafted a line-up with timely topics that will help you adapt and come out stronger. The YP Summit is your place to feel supported and have your voice heard. We’re going to #RewritetheScript.

This year’s conference will allow you flexible options to tune into multiple session types including:

  • Live-streamed sessions
  • Round table discussions
  • Interactive networking
  • Nationally known Keynote speakers

Pricing has been adjusted to reflect the new hybrid format, where the components of an in-person YP Summit have transitioned to a virtual platform. A limited number of tickets will be available to attend in-person as we get closer to the event. Stay tuned as we release additional speakers and the final schedule for the day!

Meet Our Speakers

As a hybrid event with many online speakers, this year’s program has the highest quality content and speakers the YP Summit has seen to date. All attendees, whether Virtual or In-Person, will have access to the Keynote and Featured Speakers and 2 concurrent live streamed sessions.
