The DLF is making an effort to keep our conference as green as possible. Our badge holders are compostable, we will provide plenty of filtered water in place of bottled, and we are cutting down on the amount of paper used. In this vein, we would like participants to keep in mind there will be a limited amount of printed schedules available at the registration desk. If you would like a hard copy of the schedule, please print at home. Or download the free Guidebook app and search “DLF Forum” to get our schedule on your phone!
