As you probably already know, the SHARE summer conference, scheduled for Boston, will not occur. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announced the cancellation of all gatherings in Boston for the summer, up to and including Labor Day. However, that doesn’t mean that SHARE is going to miss out on an opportunity to fulfill our mission.
As many other conferences have done this year, this summer SHARE will be virtual, delivered directly to you over the internet. After SHARE Fort Worth, it became unclear if an in-person event would be possible in Boston during the summer, so SHARE President Justin Bastin commissioned a task force of SHARE volunteers and staff to look into what a virtual conference might look like. The team discussed everything from scheduling and speaker logistics to platform and price. After seeing demos of a number of different online conference venues, the team has chosen Pathable to deliver SHARE Virtual 2020.
