LibrePlanet 2020: We'll see you at the Back Bay Events Center in Boston, MA!
We at the Free Software Foundation (FSF) are excited to say that the Dorothy Quincy suite of Boston's very own Back Bay Events Center will be the home of this year's LibrePlanet conference! We've taken the grand tour and couldn't be happier about our choice of location. We're confident that the Events Center will be a great host for the technology and social justice conference we've all come to know and love. It's just the right place for us (and the movement) to take our next steps in freeing the future.
The Events Center is providing LibrePlanet with its own entrance and a dedicated and speedy Internet connection for the livestream, and is close to both public transportation and the FSF headquarters itself. As in past years, we'll have ample space for an exhibit hall and free software workshops, as well as the ever popular "hallway track," where you can engage with other attendees in conversations on contributing to free software projects.
On the Events Center Web site, you will find accommodation and transportation suggestions that will pair nicely with those we've put up on the LibrePlanet 2020 site. The Back Bay Events Center is located at the corner of Berkeley and Stuart Street, and is close by the Back Bay stop of the Orange Line MBTA train and the Arlington stop of the Green Line MBTA train.
If you have attended LibrePlanet in past years but are generally unfamiliar with the Boston area, please note that LibrePlanet 2020 will be held in Boston and not the nearby city of Cambridge.
As in past years, you can expect the venue to be fully accessible, and equipped with enough network horsepower to drive the conference livestream. For more information on the venue's perks and services, visit the Back Bay Events Center Web site, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you have yet to register for the LibrePlanet 2020 conference, now is the time to do so!
LibrePlanet depends on the community for its success. One way you can help us is by donating to help sponsor an attendee to come to LibrePlanet, and assist us in making the conference a truly global one. If you're interested in volunteering, please write us at email@example.com.
All of us here at the FSF are deep in the planning process, but we couldn't be more excited about seeing you in person -- especially if it is your first time. (No worries, it's my first LibrePlanet conference as well!) Let's use the time we have together to the fullest, and make LibrePlanet 2020 go down in history as the place where we made great strides to "Free the Future."
