RootsTech 2011 proved to be a bold and innovative approach to genealogy conferences. There was an exciting buzz in the exhibit hall as the 2000+ attendees navigated their way through the high-tech displays and interactive family history experiences.
In my first series of articles for TechTips, I will take you on a video tour and introduce you to the names and faces that dominated RootsTech.
In this next video, Jay Verkler, CEO of FamilySearch, sits down to talk with me about the first-ever RootsTech conference held in Salt Lake City in February 2011. Jay talks about the “home runs” and the opportunities for improvement, as well as the vision for the event.
The 2012 RootsTech Conference will be held February 2-4 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, UT.
