Beyond Vanilla has always been a community driven event. The community and our stakeholders overwhelmingly said they wanted an in-person event. We are excited to announce that Beyond Vanilla 32 will be held in person on November 9 - 12, 2023. We will carefully adhere to the CDC's recommended guidelines at the time of the event and the host hotel has committed to continuing to follow strict COVID sanitizing protocols. We look forward to seeing you there.
