Thank you to our wonderful sponsors; this conference wouldn't be possible without their support!


Our reduced hotel rate at the Residence Inn Columbus Downtown is no longer available, but many conference attendees are staying there. You are encouraged to use your regular hotel-finding tools to get the best available rate!


If you will need childcare, please email as soon as possible. We will work with you to find a licensed childcare provider at your hotel and will provide a stipend to cover the cost.


We have a Slack instance that you are welcome to join. Potential topics include things to do around Columbus before, during, and after the conference; your Rust projects; ideas for the unconference; or just arranging meals!


Rust Belt Rust is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. Please see our code of conduct for more details.
