The 2022 Brand New Conference is happening!
⚠️ Dates have changed again.

After postponing for two years, it is our pleasure and delight to announce — with every ounce of optimism it will not be postponed again — that the Brand New Conference is happening in 2022!

We acknowledge announcing this during the Omicron surge may be counterintuitive but we are hoping/assuming that last year's cycle will repeat itself with late Summer/early Fall being relatively low in terms of cases, making the idea of running an event less stressful (and harmful).

As you register, please look over the new policies at the bottom of the page regarding COVID-19, cancellations, and ticket transfers.

⚠️ We have secured new dates in Austin, in the same venue, for October 3 – 4, 2022.

Due to COVID-19-infused scheduling conflicts we had to once again change dates from the previously rescheduled dates of September 22 – 23. Please note that the new dates are a Monday and Tuesday, which is the opposite of what we have done the previous ten years. We had a few other options to secure Thursday and Friday dates again but ultimately we decided Monday and Tuesday as hotel nights are cheaper those days as well as flights and knowing that it has been a complicated two years we figured easing one financial burden of attending would be welcome by many attendees. After-party dynamics might change given that partying on a Tuesday night is difficult but we will make sure that we still have a good time somehow.

Any questions and/or concerns please email us — we are here for y’all!
