In-Person Pre-Conference Sessions 

This year, we are offering an in-person Pre-Conference at the St. Paul River Centre! If you select this option, you will be required to select which Pre-Conference session(s) you will be attending on November 15, 2021. You can change which session(s) you wish to attend until 4:00 PM CDT on Friday, November 5, 2021.

As the host of the Symposium, the safety of participants and staff is our number one priority. To that end, Fusion Learning Partners has established policies to protect all attendees, presenters, sponsors, exhibitors, staff and venue (Saint Paul RiverCentre) personnel to the highest degree allowed by local, state and federal regulations. These policies include vaccine screening, prevention etiquette and compliance with all recommendations issued by the CDC, MN Department of Health, City of Saint Paul and the Saint Paul RiverCentre. 

In order to register for pre-conference sessions, you will be required to agree to these policies. Please take a moment to review them (2021 Fusion COVID Policies.pdf), assess risk and consider your willingness to comply prior to submitting your registration. Fusion Learning Partners is continually monitoring the COVID19 situation and will follow direction from the CDC and local authorities to maintain a safe in-person event. All changes or requirements for onsite participation will be communicated to registrants via email.

Virtual Conference

Your registration information will be used to create an account on the virtual Symposium site! Log-in instructions will be emailed to you in the weeks leading up to the Symposium. Once you log into the virtual Symposium site, you'll be able to complete or revise your conference profile which will be visible to other attendees, event staff and conference sponsors/exhibitors. 

There are no download requirements for virtual Symposium access. We think you'll find the virtual conference environment quite intuitive. However, if you should need any technical assistance before or during the conference, you can reach us at
