Q: Who should attend AWS Summits?
Whether you are new to the cloud or an experienced user, you will learn something new at an AWS Summit. These events, held around the world, are designed to educate new customers about the AWS products and services and offer existing customers deep technical content to be more successful with AWS.

The full agenda and ancillary activities offered at the AWS Summit are for technical and management-level roles involved in the planning, strategy, delivery, and implementation of their organisations's cloud computing strategy.

Q: Can I get a confirmation of my Summit registration?
Upon completing the online registration, you will be sent a confirmation email with event details from Amazon Web Services. Please check your junk mail folder if you do not receive this within 24 hours of registering online. You will also be provided a "Know Before You Go" email prior to the conference with a barcode, which you will present at the Summit to access your conference name badge.

Q: What is included in Summit registration?
Summit registration includes access to keynotes, breakout sessions, and the Expo Hall, as well as, receptions held within the Expo. Meals offered include light breakfast, lunch, and afternoon refreshments for all registered attendees.

Q: Will I need to register myself for each breakout session?
While access to sessions cannot be guaranteed, it is recommended that you select the sessions you wish to attend as part of your registration process. This helps event organisers anticipate capacities for sessions. You are free to change your mind and attend alternative sessions on the day depending on room capacity. Session rooms will be first-come, first-seated - there is no pre-booking of sessions.

Q: Are you streaming the keynotes or any sessions?
No, we will not be live-streaming the keynote or sessions. The recorded videos will be made available after the event. If this changes, we will update this website. The keynote will be streamed into the Expo Hall for partners. View videos from the 2016 Public Sector Summit Canberra here.  

Q: Will the slides be shared after the event?
The keynote videos and content will be available on the 'AWS On-Demand' site after the Summit.

Q: What is the AWS Summit Code of Conduct?
AWS expects all Summit participants (attendees, staff, speakers, and sponsors) to create a safe, supportive learning environment while at the conference and any conference-related events. AWS will not tolerate any form of harassment or offensive speech or behavior, including relating to race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or disability.
