Event Information

bbcon is the tech conference for a better world. With sessions for arts and cultural organizations, cause-based nonprofits, educational institutions, faith communities, healthcare organizations, foundations, and corporate giving, this conference provides an unmatched experience for all social good professionals.

We’re excited to announce that 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. 

No. bbcon now will take place as a global virtual gathering October 6-8, 2020. This online-only event will unite the social good community for three days of thought leadership and best practices, technology trends and innovations, and peer networking.

The event will take place October 6-8, 2020 virtually. 

We want to connect as many people in the social good community as possible, and we want to do it safely, so in light of COVID-19, bbcon is now proceeding as a global virtual gathering.  

We’re excited to deliver bbcon 2020 unconstrained by physical limitations. We recognize the unique opportunity to connect more people in the social good community with thought leadership and best practices, technology trends and innovations, and peer networking in a reimagined format.  

Full details on the bbcon virtual experience, including sessions, will roll out this summer.
