.conf20 | October 20-21, 2020
Event Information

.conf20 is an online conference. While we are disappointed not to be gathering in Las Vegas this year, we are excited to host .conf as a virtual experience.

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of the Splunk community, which is why we’ve decided to replace the in-person .conf event with a dynamic virtual conference.

This will not be just a fancy webinar. There will be keynotes, breakout sessions and networking in online lounges and other virtual gathering spots. There will be learning, opportunities for connecting with Splunkers and Splunk users and, as you can expect with any .conf event, there will be Splunky surprises and FUN!

All the great content you expect from .conf — keynotes, breakout sessions, etc. — will be offered via the virtual conference platform. Check out our .conf20 Session Catalog for nearly 200 breakout sessions and to learn more.

Anyone who wants to do more with their data. Operations, security and compliance professionals, architects, developers, engineers and marketers. If data is important to you, register for .conf20 and learn how to gain new insights from your data and systems.

We will deliver the virtual conference during the same week that the in-person event was originally scheduled. In an effort to ensure that the format of .conf20 works with a virtual experience, it will run over two days, October 20-21, 2020. 

There will be no cost to attend .conf20. Register now here.

The initial programming will be delivered in Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7). Opportunities in other global time zones will be announced in the coming weeks.
