No travel necessary for next NamesCon event.
NamesCon organizers have decided that the regular annual conference slated for January 2021 will be a virtual event.
The event was scheduled to return to Austin for a second year. But ravel is unlikely to be easy by January with COVID-19 still raging around the globe.
Instead, NamesCon will hold the event online. Last month it held a virtual conference that received good reviews.
Virtual events are no substitute for in person events but do have some advantages.
NamesCon hopes to hold an in-person event in Budapest July 15-17, 2021. This year’s Budapest event was postponed due to COVID.
There will be an in-person event stateside in late 2021 if things get back to normal. NamesCon plans to host a live/virtual hybrid event sometime in the fall.
