This has proven to be a wildly successful major genealogical conference that brings together genealogy researchers and genealogy software developers under one roof. Estimates indicate that about 9,000 attendees were present for the 2013 conference. Of the 9,000, 2,000 were teens that attended a special program targeted for youth. In addition, another 14,000 individuals participated online via programs that were streamed. This is truly a major event in the world of genealogy!! The above statistics were gotten from a Dick Eastman blog post from March 25, 2013. You can read the entirety of Dick’s blog post about RootsTech 2013 here:

If you want to know more about what RootsTech in general is all about, visit the following link to a series of 16 Videos produced by RootsTech from their 2013 program. These are videos of stunning quality! I think you may want to look at what the videos showcase about what RootsTech is all about. They may not all be at a very specific research level, they are often at a “larger view” of what technical developments are occurring that connect to genealogical research.
You can really get the “big picture” by looking at any one of the videos.

Enjoy the 2013 videos.
