Check out the First Event 2020 Schedule

First Event 2020 will be held January 29th to February 2nd at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. We are planning the biggest and best First Event yet as we celebrate our 40th anniversary!

The schedule for First Event 2020 is really starting to take shape. Everything you loved about previous years is back, including workshops, the banquet, fashion show, vendors, and lots of dancing. Much of the newer programming is also back, including the wellness track, the ball, and the job fair. And we are bringing in exciting new programming. While many details are yet to be confirmed, we are announcing a special showing of the documentary Jack & YaYa and an art show featuring the work of transgender and non-binary artists.

We are really excited about the new opportunities for First Event 2020 thanks to our much larger location right in downtown Boston. We are working on excursions around Boston to give you a chance to explore the finest our fair city has to offer. We are working to take our evening entertainment up a notch or two – there’s a lot brewing, but nothing I can share with you just yet.

Another highlight of the new location is that our large number of conference rooms allows us to pack our workshops all into three days, so no more racing from Youth & Family workshops to catch the Superbowl! We are so grateful that we can fold our youth and families back into the heart of the conference on Saturday, with access to all the vendors, the general medical workshops, and the great community.

So, check it out and tell us what you think below:

    1. Sorry about that, Eve! The conference is January 29 – February 2nd. I’ll update the post so you don’t have to hunt around for that.

      Hotel reservation info will come very soon, hopefully within the week. I’ll send out an email as soon as we are ready.

  1. All the new stuff is AWESOME and will keep on me back in January I talk about FE all the time to so many different people. Keep up the dynamic work See you very soon

  2. Can’t make Keystone this year, looking at First Event. How far is the hotel from the Airport? What are the costs for the event?
    Thanks. Heidi

    1. That’s a bummer you can’t make Keystone, Heidi, but hopefully you’ll be able to join us this year!

      The hotel is just a few miles from Boston Logan airport – 15-20 minutes when there’s no traffic. There’s more information on getting to the hotel from Logan on our transportation page. One great option is Logan Express, which offers free bus service every 20 minutes from the airport to just 3 blocks from the hotel.

      We haven’t finalized the prices for this year’s event, but expect them to be as close as possible to the prices from the last couple of years. Full registration for the entire conference cost $265 last year, with several lower-cost packages and a la carte pricing for attendees who are unable to attend the entire conference.
