It's on!
June 5 - 7
Cambridge, MA

Register now!

We've missed two years in a row of in-person Summits. But we haven't lost our abiding belief that live, in-person events are a part of human nature.

Public science events may look different in 2022 than they did in 2019. They ought to: Things have changed. But events have always adapted to the moment. That's part of what makes events so powerful.

And it's why we still need to get together with our live event friends. We need to sort out this cultural moment together.​

There are going to be a few changes to this Summit from previous meetings. For example, it is going to be smaller, with a cap on attendance. It is also going to be gentler, with more time to reconnect with who you are as an event organizer.

But it's still going to be a meeting of peers built specifically for the people that register to attend. And it's still going to inspire and re-energize you, and fire you up for that special something that only happens when we get together in person.

Who comes to the Summit?

Quick answer: Anyone with an interest in live, in-person public science events.

The Summit brings together public science event organizers, evaluators, collaborators, and sponsors.

Past meetings have averaged between 100 - 150 attendees. The 2022 Summit will have a smaller cap on attendance.

Many attendees are professionals, but for most event production is only one part of their job. Whether you are interested in massive science festivals or intimate science cafes, high-production stage shows or community-based science experiences, you’ll fit right in at the Summit.
