The Advancing Research conference has gone virtual!


In light of current events, we’ve decided to make the inaugural Advancing Research conference a virtual experience. We hope you’ll consider joining us; we’ll still offer our excellent program, two years in the making, and are adding a variety of remote activities to help you learn and stay connected. It’s also a less expensive commitment: we’ve reduced the ticket price to $995, and you won’t have to pay for travel.

How the AR2020 Virtual Conference will work

  • Advancing Research 2020 remains a carefully-curated Rosenfeld Media conference. That means our speakers, emcees, and moderators will be extensively prepared, and that our team will provide you with the information and customer service you need to enjoy the event.

  • We know that the social and networking aspects of conferences are critical, and we’re planning a variety of ways for you to meet and even collaborate with other conference participants, as well as speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors.
  • We’re also exploring the use of other tools, such as those supporting remote collaboration.You’ll be able to ask questions; as speakers won’t likely be able to answer all of them live, we’re exploring follow-up Q&A sessions and other approaches to connect you with speakers.

  • As a registered attendee, you’ll receive exclusive access to session recordings, as well as tripnotes, sketchnotes, and decks.

  • Upon request, we’ll provide you with closed captioned access to the presentations. If you have other accessibility-related needs or questions, please reply to this email to let us know.

  • We also know how important it is to learn about sponsors’ offerings; we’re working with sponsors to ensure you have opportunities to “meet” with them and take advantage of their swag and offers.

We hope you’ll join us –  group discounts are also available – purchase 3 or more tickets in the same order and receive 10% off. Enter code ARGROUP at checkout.
