HippoCamp 2022 Sneak Peek

We’re busy working behind the scenes building out the conference schedule and website, but since registration is open, we wanted to give you a sneak peek at confirmed speakers and sessions so far (more to come!)

We’re also posting this from, live, behind our AWP booth so for the sake of time, we’re pasting in data directly from a spreadsheet — the table below is in order by last name.

For additional clarification – the general timeline for events each day is:

  • Friday – 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. (with optional workshops from 11-2)
  • Saturday – 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. – dinner on your own – then keynote and signing from 7:30 to ~9 p.m.
  • Sunday – 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. – breakout sessions, lunch, sessions and close
