While we couldn't be together in person this year, we had a fantastic day of all things roasting, and the event was free to all. The summit featured an incredible lineup of talks from industry experts, as well as Q&A sessions with guest presenters. Roast is proud to have hosted this online event, and we look forward to seeing you the next Summit!
