On Oct. 2-3, millions worldwide will tune into the 191st Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 

Though not open to the public, the October 2021 general conference will return to its traditional site at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City — the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020. The April 2020 general conference was broadcast from a small studio in the Church Office Building while the October 2020 and April 2021 general conferences originated from the Conference Center Theater.
