COVID Info: At this time, we feel it is wise to proceed with planning for TechBash. All signs currently point to the possibility of events being safe in time for TechBash in October.We will of course follow all CDC guidelines and work towards a safe and fun event. Are you unsure about submitting? If you feel today that you are reasonably certain you would attend and present content, assuming COVID cases stay down and positive trends continue, please submit. We understand that some circumstances may need to change. 

At TechBash we inspire our attendees to build great things that will change the world. We’ve built a safe, welcoming and exciting environment that is designed for everyone to get the most out of the event. Our attendee lounge will have plenty of space for you to hang out and talk with old friends and make new ones. Speakers, attendees, and sponsors will gather in the lounge between sessions, sharing coffee, snacks, and ideas.

Our venue, the Kalahari Resort, is really cool. It is a recently expanded resort, conference center, and 220,000 sq. ft. indoor water park, now the largest in the country. The Kalahari is located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, less than a 2-hour drive from New York City, Philadelphia, and northern NJ. This location is still within reasonable driving distance of many other cities in the northeast. We look forward to seeing you there!
