Virtual and In-Person for Summer and Fall 2021
From the cancellation of events in early 2020 to the move to virtual over the past year, we’ve changed the way we conference. However, with vaccination rates rising, the return of in-person events is hopefully in the not-too-distant future.
To help navigate this still uncertain landscape, SAM pulled together a chronological list of online conferences, educational events, and tradeshows, as well as in-person events planned for the fall.
