As I discussed in a previous article East Coast RepRap 2020 was canceled. For that reason, VERRF2020 will be the ticket this year! Lauren, Nick, and Vicky all agreed that it just wasn’t safe. In response, the past sponsors of the event expressed a desire to have a live event still. But they all agreed that safety should come first.
The Festival is Going Virtual
With things still very unclear as to when the pandemic will lift and the fact, they are now much too close to the time of the event. It would be impossible at this point to contract hotels and buy plane tickets. The event just wouldn’t have been of the same quality and value. So they have decided to go virtual for the first time ever and VERRF2020 was born!
Set your calendars for October 10 & 11 of 2020
The great news is that VERRF2020 is FREE. They plan on using two Zoom streams to focus on Sponsors and Exhibitors and Build Platform Talks. It should be interesting to see how the exhibitors make use of this technology! If you’d like to sponsor or exhibit please use this Google form that they have provided: https://forms.gle/nXTzZinF3XgTYzkG7.
Let’s all support VERRF2020!
If you want to view the streams please go to Eventbrite to sign up. They will also be posting updates on their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and website. We hope to see them in person next year but until then this Virtual event might just fill the void.
