Breakout Sessions
Breakout Sessions


Immerse yourself in a new approach to knowledge sharing and idea generation


Participating in the new SAP Ariba Live breakout sessions will change the way you explore innovative information and learn. You’ll experience our solutions in an assortment of formats to help you engage in lively exchanges with peers and solution experts.


The approach is simple: You can choose from sessions of varying durations and formats, in a program you customize to meet your needs, with more opportunities to share your own insights, experiences, and questions.

Explore the session catalog


The breakout session catalog is available here. To explore it, you can filter the sessions by industries, solution area, products, skill levels, and more, including session type. Session types include:

  • Traditional education sessions: Classic presentation-based sessions and conversational panels of 20 or 45 minutes in duration. Led by SAP Ariba customers, partners, or solution experts, these sessions allow plenty of time for Q&A.
  • Hands-on labs: Hands-on labs are 75- to 90-minute facilitated experiences, designed to immerse you in interactive exercises and discussions involving SAP Ariba solutions. Facilitators will encourage everyone to participate, apply what you‘ve learned, and engage with one another to get the most out of the session.
  • Interactive workshops and deep dives: In these detailed sessions (up to 2 hours in length), you‘ll get to know the ins and outs of a customer case study, project, or use case in a casual setting that allows you to discuss, share insights, and openly engage with fellow attendees.
  • Design Thinking sessions: Put on your thinking caps. In these coach-led sessions, you’ll learn the principles of Design Thinking as you and your colleagues solve a specific challenge through a session of empathizing, defining, ideating, prototyping, and testing.


Customize your agenda


After you’ve registered for the conference, you can use the Agenda Builder to review session descriptions, speakers, and schedules to customize your personal agenda. To use the Agenda Builder, you will need your registration information: your confirmation number or e-mail used during registration, and your password.


When using the tool, check out the sample agendas we’ve created to help guide your selections. We’ve assembled these based on common business objectives. To learn more, click on the Sample Agenda link in the bottom-right corner of the Agenda Builder screen.


Please note


Adding a session to your personal agenda does not guarantee you a seat. Your use of the agenda builder helps us anticipate demand and makes plans for adequate space. We try to match demand with room capacity as best we can, but all sessions are still available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Use your personal device


The SAP Ariba Live mobile app is now available. Once you download it, your personal agenda will be available automatically on your device.


You can also get industry- and persona-based session recommendations by using our new pocket planners, interactive tools to help you plan your session agenda.
