BSPA Annual Conference
2021 BSPA Virtual Conference: Early registration discount!
On May 6-7, 2021 over 500 leading behavioral scientists, policymakers, executives, and press will join our keynote speakers Robert Cialdini, Daniel Kahneman, and Richard Thaler to gather for the 2021 BSPA Virtual Conference.
We have worked hard to ensure that this experience will be a great one for both participants and presenters by trying to take full advantage of the unique opportunities a virtual format provides, and by engaging a very experienced technical team to support the event. While we will announce more of the details very soon, we wanted to inform those who planned to attend as early as possible so you can adjust your travel plans accordingly.

Our Spotlight workshops bring policymakers, practitioners and scientists together to brainstorm various research ‘best-practices’ and topic areas in a local setting. Topics such as energy, pre-K education, health and financial decision making can drive the agenda; alternatively, these working groups can coalesce around local government priorities in order to facilitate actionable insights being put into practice on a state or municipal level.
