2021 Blandin Broadband Conference
October 12 - October 14, 2021
Online - Zoom
This year's Blandin Broadband Conference acknowledges we’ve all lived through a shared, but unique, experience, and asks, "What was yours like? How did broadband help or hinder – or motivate – you, or your community?"
This October, join the Blandin Foundation and fellow broadband champions in your region and across the state for the second annual virtual conference Building on Broadband: Inspiring Progress, hosted by Blandin Foundation with support from the Minnesota Office of Broadband Development.
Our focus for the conference this year is YOU.
First, attend a meeting in your region (online or in-person) to share your broadband story, to learn about the state of broadband, and plans around Federal funding opportunities in your neck-of-the-woods. Then, join us online for a 3-day, statewide event to hear what’s happening around the state — what is being accomplished, what is still needed, and how we can inspire each other to keep at it!
Why attend yet another virtual conference? We’ve all consumed so much online content this year (see ours here). We want this conference to be your chance to be heard. What’s the best thing you’ve experienced/learned around broadband or technology this year? What have you been working on? What has inspired you? If presenting isn’t your thing, don’t worry – suggest a TED talk we can discuss, pose an open space question, or better yet make your own short video. The sky’s the limit! See below for the full Request for Proposals form, or submit a proposal here.
