FEATURING

More topics, more breakout roundtable sessions, more debate and discussion, and more networking. We also added several pre-conference activities. • Workshops led by international experts focused on issues such as community engagement and local content. • Team building and networking activities including kayaking at La Jolla Cove and a guided hike at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. We look forward to your participation in these exciting additions to the La Jolla Conference in 2019.
This year’s La Jolla Conference was a great event. 10 out of 10 to everyone that made it happen. Chris Sladen
