SYTAR 2019 was awesome! We set a record for attendance at the conference in Newport Beach, California. For those who attended we have added some additional resources for your use to support the information gathered during the conference. If you were not able to attend, feel free to take a look at the resources provided. We hope to see you all in 2020 in the Chicago area!
See what some of the attendees had to say about the experience AND recommendations for future programs.
We received a 31% response to the conference evaluation! This information helps to provide critical information for us to ensure that future events are created with those recommendations and insights in mind.
IAYT Management and staff along with members of the board will review the information provided to improve our service to all members.
Full details from the conference can be seen here.
A number of the presenters provided handouts prior to the conference to allow attendees to use them during the sessions. After the conference we received additional slides primarily from our keynote and plenary speakers. These have been posted and are available for your review.

Recordings, and Photos
During the conference, Backcountry videotaped the keynotes and plenaries, as well as audio recording the afternoon sessions. With so much incredible information, you may want to purchase some or all of the recordings to re-visit key presentations. Not able to attend? This is an excellent opportunity to see and hear the sessions.
Many moments were captured in photos by Callie Richmond. The photos can be reviewed and copies purchased.
