Pre-Summit Workshops

You must purchase a ticket for the 2020 Interfolio Summit in order to attend a pre-Summit Workshop. Workshop registration is an additional fee of $395. Want to attend two workshops? Purchase an additional workshop for $100, saving $295! The price of two workshops is $495. Each workshop registration includes breakfast, lunch, and classroom instruction.

Interfolio experts will teach the 2020 pre-Summit Workshops. As an attendee, you will learn best practices and ways to engage with the product on your campus, as well as hear success stories and ways to overcome challenges. The last third of the workshop will be reserved for Q&A from the attendees, to get real-time feedback and hear about your use cases. Please see the description about each course in the agenda as well as the recommended attendee experience to choose which pre-Summit Workshop is right for you.

The pre-Summit Workshops are not intended to be product demonstrations, but rather an opportunity for clients to enhance their use and understanding of their current product suite.



Interested to learn about another new module for your campus? We will be offering product demonstrations during the Interfolio Summit, and we’ll have sales and services representatives available for questions throughout the conference. Additionally, Summit sessions will highlight product modules and use cases for each. Not sure if a workshop will meet your needs? Reach out to your Account Manager to discuss your campus’s needs, or feel free to write to us at Summit@interfolio.com.
