2021 Miles of Possibility Route 66 Conference
October 21 @ 6:00 pm - October 24 @ 2:00 pm
The Miles of Possibility Route 66 Conference is back this year with its sixth annual event, to be held virtually Thursday – Sunday, October 21 – 24, 2021. This year’s theme is “A Worldwide Celebration of Route 66,” emphasizing the love of Route 66 and its collegiality that is truly an international phenomenon. To that end, this year’s slate of speakers and presenters comes to you from across all eight Route 66 states and from locations around the world. Embracing the virtual format, the organizers have created a truly “worldwide” event!
The by-now familiar conference format plus social activities will be followed again this year with a few new twists. The event kicks off with a Thursday evening virtual Happy Hour to meet and greet old and new friends and colleagues from around the globe. Friday and Saturday feature daytime conference sessions, with no need this year to choose from multiple breakout sessions. ROUTE Magazine editor Brennen Matthews will present the keynote speech on Friday morning, October 22, followed by an exciting slate of speakers that Route 66 enthusiasts won’t want to miss!
Added in 2019 and back by popular demand, the Roadie Roundtable is spotlighted on Friday evening. A “Rock ‘n Roll Evening” on Saturday night includes entertainment from multiple musicians and bands, and a Route 66 song contest will make sure that you “get your kicks.”
Then on Sunday morning, the Windy City Road Warrior David Clark and Sherry Meyer of InSites to Go say, “Yup and yay! You don’t have to go home yet! Join us for a virtual Route 66 Revival Tour, roaming via ZOOM southwest on the highway that’s the best!” Plan to wrap up the 2021 Miles of Possibility Route 66 Conference on Sunday, October 24, beginning at 11:00 am Central Time. (Separate ticket required from https://www.eventbrite.com/e/route-66-revival-tour-zoom-oh-the-miles-of-possibility-tickets-151259805149).
