This year, the Summit will take place across two properties, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel and the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach. Locations of discussions and networking events are noted on our agenda and will continue to be updated as we confirm additional details. Shuttles will run between both properties throughout the event.

Above all, we remain committed to convening safely again this year. Similar to the 2021 Summit in August, we’re instituting a strong set of safety precautions that include proof of vaccination, showing a negative test result, simulcasting Main Stage sessions outdoors, and spacing out indoor seating. We’ll continue to refine these measures based on the latest guidance from the CDC, state, and local health departments.
