Kidscreen Summit 2022, originally set to take place in Miami from February 14 to 17, has been postponed until July 18 to 21.
The difficult decision to reschedule the event was made in response to the impact that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is having on the industry’s ability to travel internationally and meet in person at this time.
All existing live event registrations and sponsorships will be transferred to the rescheduled event in July. Kidscreen has posted an FAQ page to answer some of the initial questions attendees may have, and its Customer Care team (firstname.lastname@example.org) is available to provide more info.
Kidscreen Summit Virtual will still take place from March 7 to 11, and all attendees registered for the live event will also have access to this digital companion event.
“We recognize that it’s not the same experience as meeting in person, but our hope is that it still helps people make and maintain industry connections in Q1,” says Jocelyn Christie, Kidscreen’s SVP and publisher. “We are obviously very disappointed to not be hosting Kidscreen Summit in February, but we’re already looking forward to bringing the global industry together again in the summer, when we hope the landscape for gathering and travelling will be significantly improved.”
Registration is open for the postponed live event as well as Kidscreen Summit Virtual, and more information can be found online at summit.kidscreen.com.
The most recent Kidscreen Summit live event, held in February 2020, brought together more than 2,200 attendees from around the world in Miami for four days of business networking and learning.
