WORKSHOP TRACKS

At EC22, we are offering even more Workshop Tracks that focus on key topics for you and your team! These Workshop Tracks will feature key presenters with content that connects together to give more in-depth looks at targeted areas/topics for your ministry, create more familiarity and interaction with each Track's presentation team, and even create continuity as you navigate the convention area (with each Track anchored in it's own specific room) of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. We are working diligently to create Workshop Tracks that speak directly to topics and needs that our teams are facing on a regular basis. With more than 60 Workshops available, we are excited for what is building this year at EC22!
