NEARS Fall 2020 Virtual Conference

Monday, September 21, 2020 - Friday, September 25, 2020


Due to the ongoing concerns with COVID-19, the NEARS Fall 2020 Virtual Conference in Pittsburgh, Penn., has been switched to a Live Virtual Conference Format. The Pittsburgh Conference is going to have live panels, Q&A, and many interactive features.

“We are still working out the details, but let me give you a hint, #nearsweek!” NEARS said.

Sponsorships are available:

“As the NEARS organization continues to enter uncharted territory, we would like to let you know how your sponsorship dollars are being used. Scholarships are a big part of our organization giving back, to do we have awarded close to $100k to undergraduate students throughout the country. Secondly, we chose to get creative! We know your choice to participate as a sponsor gives you greater visibility throughout our conference, program books, event recognition and more! With the pandemic and the cancellation of Newport and now Pittsburgh, where did your money go, where will you future or new sponsorship money be used?
