VCF East will be a virtual hybrid show for 2020.
The dates for the live show will be October 10 & 11. Times will be released after we figure out the schedule, but expect a 9AM to 5PM time range for each day.
We already have exhibitors, class instructors and presenters signed up.
Exhibitors can submit a 5 to 10 minute video or show their exhibit in-person at InfoAge.

I know that this will be a great disappointment to many. I had hoped that after 4 months that conditions would have improved to the point that the show could be in-person, but limitations in indoor capacity makes the effort to organize an in-person show prohibitive. We considered the time, effort, money and safety to make an in-person show.
But don’t despair! Our virtual hybrid show will still be a lot of fun!
We can still make the show great despite being a virtual hybrid.
VCF West, K-Fest and HOPE have shown that a fun show can still be created while being virtual.
What do I mean “virtual hybrid”? Our plan is to have a two day event where there will be a mixture of pre-recorded videos as well as live demonstrations of exhibits. Live attendance at InfoAge will be limited to exhibitors and show administrators.
I see this event as an opportunity to show off exhibitors who normally wouldn’t be able to make the show due to distance or circumstances .
I will be sending out more details about our plans as we develop them.
In the meantime, I will be contacting exhibitors, class instructors and speakers to start making videos to send to me.
