Vertica Big Data Conference 2020 is Going Virtual

BDC 2020 Virtual Conference

The updated guidelines around the Coronoavirus (COVID-19) have caused the majority of tech and non-tech conferences to be postponed – from Mobile World Congress to HIMSS to even SXSW, which had a run of 34 consecutive years.

Over the last few weeks, a handful of our customer speakers expressed their disappointment in learning that corporate travel restrictions would prevent them from attending Vertica Big Data Conference 2020 in Boston. As an alternative, many of them offered to present their sessions remotely. That gave us an idea. While we never considered postponing the event, why not offer all of this great content live via a virtual event and recorded for on-demand viewing?

Vertica BDC 2020 is now a virtual event, held on Tuesday, March 31 and Wednesday, April 1. We will offer live webinars as well as recorded on-demand sessions, replacing the physical event that was scheduled to take place at the Boston Encore Harbor Hotel.

We will publish the revised agenda this week on the BDC Web site, but you can expect the same compelling content from our leadership, customers, engineers, and best practices experts – 20 sessions overall, with nearly double that amount available on-demand and via the Under the Hood and Data Disruptors Webcast series.

Every BDC registrant will receive information on how to participate in these sessions and there will be no cost, so this is an opportunity to encourage your broader teams to participate in Virtual Vertica BDC 2020.

Vertica Big Data Conference 2021 Confirmed – March 29, 2021 – April 1, 2021!

Naturally, nothing can replace the value of face-to-face interactions, which is why we have already confirmed that the Vertica Big Data Conference will take place at the Encore Boston Harbor Hotel next year, beginning on Monday, March 29, 2021 and running through Thursday, April 1, 2021.

So, save that date on your calendars for 2021. And, in the meantime, join us later this month at the Virtual Vertica BDC 2020 to learn about the latest Vertica product announcements, hear from the leading data-driven organizations that achieve the best analytics value for performance, and listen to the Vertica engineers and experts who build and maintain the core features and functionality in the Vertica Analytics Platform.

There will be plenty of opportunity to pose your questions in each of the online sessions. And, as with all our Webcasts, you can connect directly with our speakers after the event, so that you can keep those lively discussions going right up until next March at BDC 2021!
