Spark + AI Summit 2020 is now virtual and free! June 22-26 is just around the corner and the excitement is building! More sessions. More speakers. 4x More training. And more of the world’s data community will attend than ever before.
When we made the decision to transform Summit into a completely virtual event, we wanted to make sure that we could offer you as much of the in-person experience as possible — but in a completely virtual environment.
We’ve spent the last two months building a conference that will bring data teams together around 220+ sessions, a stellar lineup of keynotes and countless opportunities to connect with your peers — over 50,000 data scientists, data engineers, analysts, business leaders and other data professionals.
Our virtual platform launches June 19, but here’s a sneak peek at what awaits you. As soon as the platform launches, make sure to get a head start by building your agenda and your profile to get the most of your conference experience.
As you enter the conference you will be welcomed by your personalized dashboard — home base for everything you need to know about the conference. We have highlighted the most useful links to access content and a quick view of your agenda. The left navigation panel will help you explore every aspect of the conference. And keep an eye on your inbox for notifications so you don’t miss any updates.
Build your Agenda
Our agenda is jam-packed this year with five days filled with technical content for data scientists, engineers, IT leaders and industries. To add sessions to your agenda, simply click on the heart next to the session title.
We also have an incredible lineup of keynotes from industry thought leaders like Ali Ghodsi, Matei Zaharia and Reynold Xin as well as luminary keynotes from Nate Silver, Hany Farid, Amy Heineke, Adam Patzke and many others. We recommend you take time to play with the agenda filters and explore the speaker’s pages to build your dream agenda.

You can also book a 1-to-1 meeting with experts in the Advisory Lounge, get content specific to your industry in the Industry Lounges, learn more about Delta Lake, Apache Spark™, MLflow and more at the Databricks Booth, and interact with our amazing sponsors.
We want to be able to bring people together and connect in a virtual space. We are doing this in many ways throughout the platform. Check out the Data People page for a directory of who’s around. You can also go to the Suggested for Me tab to meet like-minded individuals and recommended sessions/experiences to check out.
