We’ll ‘see’ you at our most accessible bbcon ever, a global virtual gathering

For nearly two months, our team has been hard at work exploring every option for bbcon 2020, the tech conference for a better world, and we’re excited to share our plan with you today.

We’re shifting bbcon 2020 from a physical setting to a global virtual gathering October 6-8.

We understand that risks associated with large-scale live events this year remain unknown, and we also recognize that many organizations face tough budget decisions, especially related to travel and professional development opportunities. We’re committed to bringing you the latest tools and industry trends and facilitating invaluable connections with peers—and we’re committed to doing that safely.

Our team will continue working on the comprehensive details in the weeks to come, including speakers and session breakdowns. Here are a few notes we want to highlight today:

Q: Will bbcon 2020 cost less? 

A: Yes—and we’re thrilled for the opportunity to offer our most accessible conference yet.

Q: Won’t the virtual format lose some of the excitement? 

A: No way! We’ll still bring you can’t-miss speakers, and we’ll move our games and social events online to ensure that bbcon 2020 is just as fun and engaging in this reimagined format.

Q: Will I still be able to network?

A: Absolutely. We will facilitate this cornerstone bbcon experience in creative new ways. 

Please check out our FAQ for more information. We will share more information by May 15 and full details on the virtual experience in early summer. In the meantime, please know that we’re working daily to bring you the best bbcon yet.
