Important Update on Elevate 2020

The Certent team has always put our customers first, and as much as we look forward to bringing our global finance community together, our priority is to protect the health and well-being of our customers, partners, and employees.

We will continue to deliver online events and training throughout 2020 that advance your capabilities with our equity management and disclosure reporting solutions. Our team remains committed to your success and will turn its focus on producing an outstanding experience for Elevate 2021. As this program comes together, we will update you with details.
