Dent:Blend Richmond 2020 – Online!

October 23, 2020

“A fantastic experience!”

“Dent was everything I had hoped for and more. I felt inspired!”

Dent:Blend is a one-day, community powered Dent experience that seeks to bring the experience and vision of the annual Dent conference to new communities across the country. Special for 2020 we are creating a remixed virtual experience on October 23rd at 1pm EST / 10am PST so as many people can enjoy Dent:Blend and see what the fuss is about!

Our Blend-At-Home Experience for 2020

Here’s how it will work: Every registration will get the same great speakers as the on-site event and you’ll even get a virtual swag bag of unique goodies we’re pulling together just for this year! We are keeping the schedule trim (1pm EST – 3:30pm EST with a 30 minute optional after party / Q&A) to save you from too much digital eye strain.

But wait – there’s more! We also will have a “Dent:Blend-At-Home” physical package you can order for an additional charge. This box of exclusive items will include a beer and food tasting as well as other goodies for an at-home tasting recreating some of our usual Blend experience. This box will also tie-in to a Q&A with the brewers / chef’s / awesome people who are helping to make it extra special.

At Dent:Blend we seek to create a unique experience to explore our future and our past through the lens of innovative leadership and creativity while simultaneously immersing ourselves in our beautiful surroundings and exploring all that Richmond has to offer. At its heart, Dent:Blend Richmond is an annual unpretentious event about vision with smart, thoughtful folks trying to change the world from the stage and the seats.

Our speakers come from all over the country and right here in the Mid-Atlantic providing ground-breaking approaches. From climate change to life-changing nonprofits or startup successes to lesson-sharing failures, Blend pulls no punches in providing an opportunity to learn and create community with fascinating people with an energy to do amazing things.

“Dent: Blend was a fabulously well-curated experience. I got to meet new people who turned me on to ideas and projects I’d never heard of, try out new technologies, interact with art in a brand new way, and sample some of the best food and drink in Richmond. Also, it was incredibly entertaining. A perfect day.”
