Kidscreen is also planning a virtual companion event two weeks later for attendees who aren’t ready to return to business travel yet
The kids industry’s most important annual event to take place live next year
With vaccines starting to make a real difference in the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Kidscreen is excited to announce its intention to host a live Kidscreen Summit 2022 event that will take place in Miami again from February 14 to 17.
A health & safety plan is currently in development based on comprehensive survey feedback from the industry and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which continue to evolve. It will include measures such as more outdoor meeting spaces; modifications to food service; and access, sanitization and distancing initiatives as recommended.
Kidscreen recognizes that not everyone may be ready to travel by Q1 2022, so a Kidscreen Summit Virtual companion event is also set to take place two weeks later from March 7 to 11. It will feature adapted versions of some of the Summit’s signature networking formats; a unique lineup of panels, presentations and Q&As; and access to recordings of session highlights from the live event, including the Kidscreen Awards.
“A lot has changed in the last 18 months, but one thing that hasn’t is the importance of coming together to do business and meet new people,” says Jocelyn Christie, SVP and Publisher of Kidscreen. “As always, we are honored to provide a forum for these critical interactions. And whichever event option is the right fit, we can’t wait to welcome everyone to the 23rd edition of Kidscreen Summit next year.”
Live Pass holders will have full access to both events. Virtual Pass holders can attend Kidscreen Summit Virtual and catch up on live event content via an on-demand video library. Registration for Kidscreen Summit 2022 is now open, and more information can be found online at summit.kidscreen.com.
The most recent Kidscreen Summit live event in February 2020 brought together more than 2,200 attendees in Miami, representing a 5% increase in registrations from 2019.
