Early bird tickets go on sale tomorrow!

We are opening early bird ticket sales on January 18th, 2019 at 9am MST. We only have 75 of these reduced cost tickets* available. Don’t miss out!

This year will be packed full of more of what you asked for in 2018! Based on overwhelming feedback, we have decided to discontinue our open space experiment that we started a few years back. Instead, we will have two full days of workshops, presentations, panels, and much much more! Our program team is excellent this year, and have been working hard to bring fantastic content to you. We will be announcing speakers on or before February 25th, 2019 with the full schedule to follow shortly thereafter. 

P.S. Are you interested in 10 or more tickets? Please reach out to mha@agiledenver.org to find out more about our limited discounted group sales tickets. 

* Early bird tickets are $475 per ticket and will be available from January 18th, 2019 at 9am MST until January 31st, 2019 (or sold out, which ever is first). Only one ticket per person may be purchased. General admission tickets are $550 and will be available for purchase on February 1st at 9am.
