An update on the planning for BSides Roanoke:
The BSides Roanoke Planning Committee wants to reiterate our commitment to hosting a successful event for attendees and sponsors. We still desire to hold an in-person conference for the first BSides in Roanoke. Ongoing uncertainty with COVID-19 and public gatherings continues to make planning difficult. However with the start of vaccination programs we hope change is on the horizon.
We plan to hold an in-person BSides Roanoke event on October 2nd, 2021 at Virginia Western. This date avoids similar events in the region and should provide time for official guidance based on results from vaccination programs. As we move forward we will notify all stakeholders (sponsors, speakers, ticket holders) of the new date and continue preparation activities.
Producing a successful and safe event is at the forefront of our minds. We appreciate your support for this event, and thank you for continuing to work with us through obstacles presented by COVID-19. As planning progresses we will provide updates and work with you on sponsor-related conference activities. If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to us.
