Advancing Research 2022: We’re shifting from hybrid to virtual


The bad news, then the good news

Bad news first

Sadly, we’re reverting Advancing Research 2022 to a virtual only event; it’ll run three days (March 9-11) instead of two.

It’s heartbreaking—we had an incredibly innovative hybrid event designed for you. We desperately wanted to host you here in NYC. And three years in, we’ve still not had a chance to meet in person!!

But these are uncertain times, and we don’t want you, our speakers, or our team risking exposure to COVID. Let’s hope we’ll go hybrid in 2023.

Now the good part

If you’ve attended any of the seven COVID-era conferences that Rosenfeld Media has produced, you’ve seen (and helped) us tune the virtual experience to the point where it’s on par with great in-person events. From facilitated attendee cohorts and social events to incredibly engaging Slack discussions and our emcee Bria Alexander’s bad dad jokes, we’ve truly designed our way past Zoom fatigue. And you’ll walk away with notes, sketch notes, the decks, resource lists, and of course access to the recordings.

The speaker roster and program are coming together nicely, and the workshop lineup will be announced very soon. Ticket prices go up January 12; if you’re confident that our curation team of Jamika Burge, Jem Ahmed, and Chris Geison can deliver an amazing program along with our fantastic virtual experience (I think you should be!), you might want to register now.

We hope we’ll see you virtually at Advancing Research 2022!
