I’ve been attending RootsTech since 2011, when it first began. I attended when there were only 3,000 attendees, and the event has evolved and grown. I attended in London, England, in 2019, and I attend the last live event in 2020 in Salt Lake City. During 2021 and 2022, RootsTech went virtual, and it grew to over one million participants from 242 countries.
This year in 2023, RootsTech moves to a virtual and live event, and I can’t wait to return to Salt Lake City again to meet old friends that I haven’t seen since 2020.
The RootsTech team posted the classes just a few days ago, and you can find them HERE. This page allows you to search by name or description. You can also filter by how you will attend, whether virtually or in person. If you have a favorite speaker, you can also search that way.
Today the first Keynote speaker was announced, and she is Jordin Sparks. The American Idol Season 6 winner will share her personal story and speak to the power of uniting through song and word on the first day of the conference. As I learn of the other Keynote speakers, I’ll let you know.
This brings me to my news.
As a RootsTech Influencer, I am privileged to give away a conference pass to the Live Event. So if you are going to RootsTech or have been thinking you should go, then this contest is for you. The value of this pass is $98 US. Please don’t enter if you do not intend to attend in person. If you’ve already purchased your live pass, don’t worry. You can still enter, and if you are the winner, you will be reimbursed for the pass you’ve already purchased.
For those who aren’t attending live, you can sign up for your FREE virtual pass and stay tuned because, just as I have in the past, I will be searching the Expo Hall at RootsTech like a ninja searching for the perfect prize which will be a surprise. More to come just prior RootsTech.
