STC 2022 will be held virtually this year from June 21-23. The planning committee has been weighing all the options for where and how to hold the conference. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback following last year’s virtual conference on the OnAir platform. We also reached out to the SUNY CIOs to understand how travel and professional development budgets are shaping up for 2022. The final factor in our decision is the ongoing construction in Lake Placid that has taken the conference center and many Olympic venues offline for 2022.
If we were to hold an in-person event in 2022 it would have to be in a location other than Lake Placid, and we estimate we would have about half the usual number of attendees. The planning committee wants to provide attendees and exhibitors the best experience possible. For the attendees that means another virtual conference. For our exhibitors, we understand that the experience in the OnAir platform was not up to par, as a result the committee will host a virtual conference without an interactive exhibitor component. We know this is disappointing, we feel it too, but be prepared for 2023 – we will be in person, we will be in Lake Placid, it will be a blast!
Save the date for our 30th anniversary, June 19-22, 2023.
Thank you for your continued support of STC, we look forward to seeing you when the time is right.
