virtual conferences have gained importance than never before. With very low attendance and presence and withdrawal of some accessibility conferences such as CSUN 2020, South by Southwest, there was a buzz in #a11y community to have a platform to have the missed sessions through.
A Future Date Online Conference Was Born
Few voluntary accessibility enthusiasts came forward to put together a plan to invite all missing presenters who could not travel because of #covid-19 #pandemic. The responses from through-out the globe gave birth to the new A Future Date Online accessibility conference.
