soap! 2021 | the best content conference
2-4 June 2021, Kraków, Poland
We’re heartbroken to announce that soap! conference won’t happen this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Even though we sincerely hope that our lives will start getting back to normal by June, it’s very likely that the situation will still not allow our international audience to gather in Kraków. That is why we decided to postpone the whole event till 2-4 June 2021. It was a tough decision but we believe that is the responsible thing to do to keep our community and our loved ones safe.
We have prepared a number of FAQs for you. If you have any other questions, send us a message with our contact form.
Did you consider making soap! 2020 a virtual event?
Yes, we did. We also considered moving it to September. There are many reasons why we decided to move the event to 2021, but the biggest one is: soap! wouldn’t be soap! without you guys. We are known for being a crowd that creates a unique atmosphere and many of us come back to soap! not only for the content but also for this unique feel and fantastic people. Without you asking questions from the audience and getting little soaps in return, or chilling in deck chairs in the garden, or sipping a beer on the terrace by the Vistula river, or – at least some of you – dancing like crazy on the Friday night after-party, soap! is not what we want this event to be – a thriving community of friends and professionals. soap! without soapers meeting face-to-face wouldn’t be soap! anymore. That is why we decided to keep the original form of the conference and move it to the next year.
What has changed?
Apart from the date, not much. We are meeting on 2-4 June 2021, that’s the biggest change. Other details remain the same. That means that we will meet at Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology in Kraków and will be talking about the future of content.
Manggha Museum remains closed until social distancing and self-isolation restrictions are lifted. However, you can browse through a number of online cultural activities they have recently launched on their web page. Explore Manggha’s online activity (Polish only).
Does the conference theme change?
No, the theme remains the same: content 2077 | the future is now (what a relief that this will still be valid and probably for the next 50 years, too!).
Will it be possible to submit talk and workshop ideas for soap! 2021?
Yes. Even though the draft conference agenda was in pretty good shape before we paused all the work for a while to see how the coronavirus situation develops, we will keep our call for talks and workshops open. With conference being moved to 2021 we can’t be sure that all our confirmed speakers and trainers will be able to join us and so we want to allow new submissions. Call for speakers and trainers will be open till and including 31 January 2021.
