We at CannonKeys are excited to be hosting our first official keyboard meetup!
The meetup will be held at the Omni Providence Hotel in Providence, RI on Saturday, August 20th!
More information will be released as we continue finalizing more details!
Each person attending will be required to have purchased a ticket, and we are allowing each person attending to display up to 3 keyboards each. The ticket also includes a swag bag to be handed out upon arrival. Part of this swag bag is a t shirt, so be sure to fill out the google form in your inbox after buying the ticket to ensure we get the correct size for you!
Our panel guests have been confirmed, our agenda has been refined, and we are excited to share more information with you!
You can check in and setup at any point after the meetup begins at 2PM, however we recommend arriving towards the beginning to ensure you don't miss out on anything!
