Important Changes to the Elevate Summits

At Blue Sky / Elevate we are dedicated to holding safe and exemplary events.  In light of the current state of affairs with COVID-19, we have made some fundamental changes to how we will deliver this Spring’s Elevate Summits.

  • We will hold only one in-person event this Spring in Salt Lake City on May 28, 2020.
  • We will stream this live event so it is available to all who wish to attend online, especially in Denver and Lansing, where we had originally been scheduled to hold in-person Summits.
  • We will make additional online education content available and will conduct online mastermind sessions for those who are not attending in person.
  • White papers based on these sessions will be emailed to participants and sponsors after the event as an added bonus.
