Raise 2021 will take place in Washington, DC and virtually September 13-14, 2021.
In-person experience will provide live attendance to all sessions, bonus ‘in-person only’ sessions, access to conference app, networking events, meals, gift bag and the ability to personally interact with attendees and sponsors. All in-person attendees will have post event access to the on-demand library for up to 1 year post conference.
Virtual experience will provide live streaming access of most conference sessions, live Q&A during sessions via the conference app and access to the on-demand conference for up to 1 year post conference.
In-Person registration can be switched to a virtual event registration through July 15, 2021. You are eligible for a refund of the difference between the cost of your in-person ticket and the current virtual price of a ticket or rollover the difference to the 2022 Raise conference.
Virtual registrations are non-refundable but can be transferred to another team member if you’re no longer able to attend.
The safety of our attendees, sponsors and staff are our number one priority at the in-person event. As the guidance around the pandemic is continuously changing and can differ from region to region we will always err on the side of caution. These safety precautions will most likely include the following:
Our partners at the Eaton DC Hotel have a very expansive list of steps that they are additionally implementing to ensure the safety of all guests which can be viewed here.
If for some reason we aren’t able to host the in-person event due to safety concerns, this decision will be made in late July 2021. At that time all in-person registrations will be automatically converted over to the virtual conference and attendees will be offered either a refund of the difference or the option to rollover the difference for the 2022 conference.
Attendees who booked with the conference hotel will receive a refund. Attendee will be responsible for managing the cancellation of their transportation to/from Washington, DC.
We’ll have a number of tracks focused on event, online, hybrid, auction, peer-to-peer, virtual & general fundraising. Our full schedule of sessions will be released mid-summer 2021.
