Room Sharing

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we are encouraging participants to share rooms when possible in order to reduce our footprint. We will be releasing a platform in the coming weeks that it will make it easy for attendees to find roommates.


Hosting the Summit on the UMass Amherst campus allows us to take advantage of alternative transportation around Amherst and the Pioneer Valley. We encourage Summit attendees to carpool, bus, walk, and bike to campus and the surrounding towns during the event.


We will be releasing a platform in the coming weeks that will make it easy for attendees to find carpool buddies. In the meantime, we encourage you to think about your colleagues and friends who will be traveling from your neck of the woods and reach out to them about sharing a ride!

Heads up! There will be a raffle for all attendees who use alternative transportation at least once during the Summit!


Since the first Summit in 2015, we have worked hard to make sustainable decisions throughout the program planning process; we strive to serve local and regional foods throughout the event and we are dedicated to minimizing waste by using reusable materials and composting.
