The 2020 ILDA Conference has been moved to the cloud, via videoconferencing. Now it is simple for anyone to attend — just register and join us via Zoom! Early registration is just USD $57 for ILDA Members, through October 20. After that date it is $77. Non-members are also welcome to attend, for $157.

The Conference will take place over the Friday-Sunday weekend of Nov. 20-22. In some early time zones like China, East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, most events will be Saturday-Monday Nov. 21-23.

This will have all the features of an in-person Conference such as the seminars, Awards,
Laser Jockey contest, Lase-Off and Business Meeting. Plus there will be networking during the "ILDA After Dark" informal sessions, in between ILDA's scheduled sessions. The Conference will be 25 hours of ILDA material (some repeats) and 32 hours of ILDA After Dark.

We have tried to accommodate the time zones of most of our Members. A complete schedule, and details of the sessions, are on the
2020 ILDA Cloud Conference page.
