BBCON 2020 Virtual Will Be FREE To All Attendees!

When we decided to shift bbcon 2020 to a global virtual gathering, we knew we wanted to do more than simply translate the tech conference for a better world into an online format. We wanted to reimagine the conference entirely!

Because of the impacts of COVID-19, we are making bbcon 2020 Virtual FREE for all to attend October 6-8!

We understand the challenges this year presents—from the safety of live events to budgetary and travel concerns. So, we want to take this opportunity to deliver our most accessible bbcon ever and know that expanding our audience will only enrich the experience for all. 

Current registrants can either transfer their existing conference passes to bbcon 2021—and unlock additional perks for their organizations—or receive a full refund. We also will extend an automatic registration to that group or the choice to opt out.

Registration officially opens for everyone in July. We will release more comprehensive details then, including sessions, speakers, networking opportunities, and social events.  

For more details view our FAQ page here. We hope to see you and your peers registering for the FREE bbcon 2020 global virtual gathering, this July!

Quick question: are these additional perks for bbcon 2021 or for bbcon 2020? Just wondering what they are because we had it in our budget to pay for a bbcon 2020 registration before we heard the news of free registration.

WOOHOO!!!!
This is great! I missed the presentations last year for budget reasons and wasn't expecting to be able to attend this year, either. I'm looking forward to seeing what's on the schedule!
