WIn a 3-day Pass to RootsTech London

RootsTech London is rapidly approaching. It will take place at the ExCel London conference venue from 24-26 October 2019, and I am privileged to be able to give away a free registration.

The three-day pass, valued at £149, gives you access to:
  • Over 150 classes (lectures)
  • The Keynote and General Sessions
  • The Exhibition Hall
  • An evening event
Read on to find out how to enter the competition.

A RootsTech conference really is an experience not to be missed. Only one keynote speaker, Donny Osmond, has been announced so far, though I am sure those to follow will be very interesting. Donny was a keynote speaker at RootsTech 2015 in Salt Lake City, and I was able to see him live. Here is my blog about his appearance. Speaking as someone who is not a fan of the Osmonds, I can still say that Donny is an excellent speaker and well worth listening to.

The Exhibition Hall will also be a major draw card. A handful of the exhibitors have been announced in this blog post, but there will be many more organisations represented than just this sample.

There will be a wide variety of classes of all levels from beginner to advanced, and of course, many DNA sessions. The class schedule is available online, so you can have a look at the topics on offer.
