Even though our signature event is virtual this year, Be. and our presenters are working hard to give you the best live experience possible. We’re keeping the event engaging and interactive with virtual campus tours, music, giveaways, and live hands-on workshops. Additionally, attendees can opt for the VIP Experience, which includes exclusive access with special guests, a swag box and project kit delivered before the conference.

This event is produced by the Be. Organization. At Be., our mission is to encourage and nurture youth to live above their socially-imposed limitations; to develop their character, talents, and leadership skills allowing them to go beyond a dream and achieve remarkable excellence.
