We would really have loved to bring SmashingConf to Toronto, the whole team loves the city and the web community there. As we closed out Smashing Toronto 2019 we fully intended to be back in 2020.
However, it has become obvious that the Toronto event isn't cost-effective for us as a small company with limited resources. We've tried to figure out how to make this work without compromising the sort of event you have come to know and love, but have sadly had to come to the conclusion that we can't return to Toronto in 2020.
However, we do have good news as well!
We were left with an empty slot for 2020, and so we’re excited to announce a new event for 2020 — SmashingConf Austin, Texas! We’ll bring SmashingConf to Austin on June 9–10, 2020, and we’d be happy and honored to see you there as well.
Community and connections matter, and we hope you’ll have a chance to maintain the connections you establish in Toronto and — who knows — perhaps also bring them over to Austin for our next new adventures! Hope to see you there! 🌮
