Due to the ongoing concerns of safety for our attendees, speakers, sponsors, and families, we've made the difficult decision to postpone TechBash yet again.
Last year, TechBash 2020 faced a similar fate as we were forced to cancel due to the ongoing threat of the pandemic. As organizers, we've spent a good deal of time talking with participants in TechBash 2021 and with organizers of regional events to better understand their concerns and to collect suggestions for our event. After spending time discussing, we felt that we could not offer an event that would create a safe environment for participants in the conference. Our decision was made easier when we had heard the news that the Steamtown Marathon in Scranton, PA would be cancelled and that beginning on September 7th, all students in public and private schools across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are required to wear a mask.
If you have purchased a ticket for the event, your purchase will be refunded. If you have booked a room at the Kalahari, you can either continue to stay at the discounted rate or you can cancel your room. To cancel, you can visit Passkey, the online registration system, or you could call the call center at 877-525-2427.
We do have some good news. We will be back at the Kalahari Resorts and Convention Center in Pocono Manor, PA next year. Additional details for TechBash 2022 will be announced soon. We are excited to see each and every one of you in person in 2022 and hope by then we've contained the virus and eliminated pandemic concerns.
Stay tuned for more information!
