Our Sincere Thanks...

In this challenging time, so many of us have yearned for the connection and community of Kando. Making the decision to make the event virtual was a difficult one, and with it came new challenges for us. Would the technology work? How do we bring the unique sense of togetherness to a virtual space? Could we still have an event that engages while educating?

The result for all of us at Sony Alpha has been simply, wonderfully, amazing.

To all of our instructors, hosts, and guests - thank you for your patience and participation to make sure the technology could work.

To all of our sponsors and participants in the Expo - thank you for your continued support, and for bringing so much great programming and access to Kando. Each of you found creative ways to be engaged with our virtual community.

Lastly, but always most importantly, we thank all of YOU who spent your weekend (or part of it) with us. The response to the event was incredible, and it was such a joy that photographers, filmmakers, and creators from around the world could join us. Community has always been at the core of Kando; watching all of the networking, sharing, and communication in the online chats brought the fond memories of past Kando Trips around campfires and dinner tables. We know there were technical challenges for some of you, and for that we commit to doing better.

In the coming days and weeks we will be presenting replays and highlights of Kando Everywhere sessions here on Alpha Universe.
