Any idea if the University Day will happen during, before or after the main conference days?  Just wondering if we need to adjust travel time.

Does anyone know when the full list of Marketo sessions will be loaded into the scheduler?  Seems a bit expensive for 5 sessions that are only in there now.  It has been this was for a few weeks now.
