bbcon is hosted annually bringing the Blackbaud community together to share, learn, inspire, and innovate.

After three years as a virtual gathering, we are back LIVE this year in Denver–October 22 through October 24. We can’t wait to welcome thousands of Blackbaud users and those interested in learning more about how to use Blackbaud’s software to fuel their impact.

In 2023, we are excited to co-locate the Blackbaud K–12 User Conference at bbcon. Now K–12 private schools can connect their whole school community together for the learning event of the year.

The in-person event will be hosted at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

  • October 21: Preconference, including Blackbaud University Day
  • October 22-24: bbcon core program

Some featured sessions will be livestreamed during the conference, with core of breakout sessions available on-demand in November through virtual pass. More details to follow.

Space is limited, so we recommend registering as soon as possible to secure your seat for the in-person experience. Passes for the in-person in Denver will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis until they are sold out. Registration will open in mid-April. Add your name to our bbcon mailing list to be notified when registration opens.

The in-person agenda includes keynotes, luminary super sessions, and breakout sessions across two-and-a-half days. It includes networking activities, a Welcome Reception and our bbcon bash. In addition, our MarketPlace offers access to Blackbaud experts, partners, and sponsors showcasing the latest products and services for the social good community. Detailed agenda coming soon.
