The 2021 Brand New Conference has been postponed to 2022.

Despite our optimism when we first postponed the conference in 2020 to 2021 that we would be able to host the conference this year, the continued development of COVID-19 around the world, at this point in the year (January 2021), makes it impossible to have a safe and responsible in-person event yet.

October 2021 may seem far off and the promise of the vaccine is encouraging but we can not invest the time and money needed to run our conference when there is still a very real possibility that we will not be able to hold an in-person event.

This was, once again, an extremely difficult (and sad) decision to make as this conference is so important to us on so many levels but there is no scenario this year in which we can put on the conference in a way that is financially sustainable for us and, more importantly, in a way that is socially responsible for the finances, health, and well-being of our speakers, attendees, sponsors, and volunteers.

We have secured new dates in Austin, in the same venue, for September 22 – 23, 2022.

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