Introducing “The Box”.
After years of trying to register hundreds of people before the start of the first session (usually with lines stretching around the building, usually in the rain), we decided to just send you everything ahead of time and let you just show up with a badge.

I am Groot!
For this event, we moved to the Ohio State University’s Schottenstein Center, a huge change in venue with many logistical challenges and opportunities. On the plus side, there was PLENTY of room in the hallways for moving about and for sponsors. For the movie, we provided buses to the theaters at the nearby Lennox Town Center. And for the speakers - how many tech speakers get to say they did a sold-out show at the Schottenstein Center?

In one of our toughest decisions, we decided to cancel the event in early 2020 as COVID was just gaining a foothold. In hindsight it was the right call but it was still tough for everyone involved in the event.
Here’s a trailer for you anyway.
It wasn’t yet time to get back together in person.
