Quoting from the announcement dated 6 October 2022:
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH—RootsTech, the world’s largest family history gathering, is back March 2–4, 2023, with an in-person event in Salt Lake City, Utah, to complement its massive online conference. Millions of virtual and in-person attendees will gather for inspiring keynote addresses, instructive classes, innovative technologies, and the opportunity to connect to their family—past, present, and future. Registration is now open for the 2023 event. The online event is free. The 3-day, in-person experience is $98. Register now at RootsTech.org.
You might note that there is no tiered price, it is a flat $98. There is likely not a discount for any special interest group or whatever. The online event is free to everyone. This will be an interesting experiment to see if the live event will draw big crowds if the online event is free. I suppose that those legislating for an in-person event will find out if this actually works.
The theme for RootsTech 2023 is “Uniting.” RootsTech is all about bringing people, stories, memories, technology, innovation, communities, and ultimately—families—together.
“Families are the foundation of society,” said FamilySearch CEO Steve Rockwood. “Connecting and uniting families across generations strengthens individuals and nations alike. We are amazed and gratified to see the role RootsTech has been able to play in helping literally millions of individuals connect with their family, past, present, and future.”
This will be my 13th year attending RootsTech in person or virtually. I have been at all the live events except one when my wife and I were serving a mission in Annapolis, Maryland digitizing documents for FamilySearch. That year there was a live event, but I was online.
There is a really good reason to attend in person because there will be about 200 live classes including one from me, and about 200 exhibitors in the Expo Hall.
Hope to see you in person this next year in Salt Lake City, Utah.
