EDS 2021 Rescheduled 

Monday, August 30 - Thursday, September 2 | The Mirage Resort | Las Vegas

Nothing is more important to us than the health and well-being of our fellow industry leaders. With many experts now expecting the new Covid-19 vaccines to be generally available in the U.S by June of next year, the EDS board has decided to move next year’s 2021 EDS Leadership Summit — previously scheduled for May 10 – 14 — to August 30 through September 2. The Mirage Resort in Las Vegas will continue to be our hosting venue.

We’ll be providing more details about EDS Summit and registration information at as they become available. For now, please note the date change and mark your calendars for August 30–September 2!
