We work hard to make FWD50 the most valuable week of your year, combining essential lessons with inspiring content and the chance to learn from your peers at home and around the world. Tickets include access to keynotes, workshops, and breakouts throughout the event.

This year, we’re adding an executive track, created with our partners including APEX and the CIO Strategy Council.

Buy tickets

FWD50 is considered a training event for federal employee budgetary purposes. We reserve our deepest discounts for bulk orders by government teams. Please contact us for more details.

While we anticipate an in-person event in November, we know we need to plan carefully for every eventuality in these challenging times. So we’re planning FWD50 2020 with a hybrid model: Attendees (and speakers) have the option to join in-person or online.

As a result, you can buy an in-person or a virtual ticket. If we’re forced to cancel the physical event, in-person ticket holders will get a refund or credit towards the 2021 event.

This year, we’ve changed ticketing providers, so the platform fees are built into the ticket prices rather than added on at checkout.

Refund policy

If you buy a ticket for the in-person event and we have to cancel it, you’ll be able to attend virtually. You’ll get a refund for the remainder of your ticket, or a credit towards the 2021 conference.
