Breakout session types

SAP Ariba Live features a variety of session formats that facilitate lively, insightful exchanges between peers and solution experts. You’ll be able to customize your program, choosing from sessions that vary in structure and duration. But please remember, as mentioned above, sessions are available on a first-come, first-served basis and seats cannot be reserved.

Customize your agenda

After you’ve registered for the conference, you can use the Agenda Builder to customize your personal agenda. To do so, you’ll need your registration information: Your confirmation number or e-mail address used during registration, and your password.

When using the tool, you can navigate the sessions by selecting between a business outcome track, a solution track, or simply by audience type. Or you might want to check out the sessions created for special programs, such as new users or growing companies. Visit the Agenda Builder to get started.
