Get your ticket for the conference

The Portland conference will be held on April 14-16, 2024, in Revolution Hall.

The full event website is live and already includes many details. We’ll be updating it with more information as we get closer to the event.

If you’re excited to join us again in person, go ahead and register for your ticket now! We are still planning to limit capacity of the event to ensure that we have a safe and community-focused experience for everyone, so we expect tickets to sell out a few weeks before the conference.

Similar to our past conferences, we’re going to have a wide range of ways to engage:

  • Speaker Presentations
  • Writing Day
  • Unconference Sessions
  • Sponsor Expo + Job Fair
  • Welcome Reception
  • Conference Party

We’re excited to see you all in Portland again soon.
