The Fine Print

A ticket to The Phocuswright Conference 2022 is required for all applicants, to be paid by the sponsoring company at the prevailing price. If you are already registered for the conference, you are still eligible to apply to participate in the Young Leaders Summit.

The tenure of the 2023 Young Leaders will begin on November 16, 2023 and continue for one year, concluding on the first day of the 2024 Phocuswright Conference, when a new Class Young Leaders will convene.
