Over 400 young professionals from all over the Sacramento region.

What is the dress code?

You will see a wide range of attire at the Emerge Summit. Come in what you feel best in. We want you to feel comfortable and confident so you can focus less on what you’re wearing and more on what you’re learning.

Please note: Breakout and lunch locations will be located within walking distance. Comfy shoes are highly recommended.

Do I have to be a member of Metro EDGE to attend Emerge?

You don’t have to be a Metro EDGE member to attend. There are lots of great benefits of membership. Members have the option to take part in a series of great committees including the Emerge Summit committee which helps to plan and organize events as well as staff the conference the day of.
