Event Details

VCF East is for everyone! Computer geeks, families/children, students, collectors, IT professionals, curious onlookers… #vcfeast

What a difference 24 hours makes! Since last night’s announcement, we have now seen various state governments recommend cancelling all large gatherings in light of the “continued outbreak and to aggressively mitigate the spread of the virus.” in the words of the Governor of NJ.

As such, VCF East 2020 will be POSTPONED (not cancelled) until October 10th through 12th, 2020. This is Saturday through Monday, Columbus Day.

Over the past week we have been actively working on backup plans for VCF East in the event it had to be postponed, with several different contingencies planned based on different circumstances that might arise. While it is unfortunate that such a circumstance has occurred, the VCF Steering Committee is pleased to inform everyone that we have secured the dates mentioned above, along with the needed space at the Infoage Science and History Museums.

Additionally, we have been reaching out to our Keynote Speakers and class proctors to lock in their availability. We have confirmed that Bill Mensch, Michael Tomczyk, Bil Herd and David Murray have all confirmed their availability as of today. We will update the website, class schedules, etc. over the coming week to reflect the changes in date as well as filling in who can and cannot attend based on the new days of the event.

Please stay tuned for more updates as the days and weeks go by, and please, stay safe and healthy!

VCF Steering Committee
