Data + AI Summit 2020 Europe takes place virtually in just a few days,from 17-19 November – and it’s free to attend! Formerly known as Spark + AI Summit, Data + AI Summit will bring together thousands of data teams to learn from practitioners, leaders, innovators and the original creators of Spark, Delta Lake, MLflow and Koalas.
In June, we were able to successfully transform Summit into a completely virtual experience. The Data + AI Summit will be even better with optimised engagement throughout the conference platform, plus hundreds of sessions at your fingertips, anytime and from anywhere. Although the conference schedule is scheduled for European attendees, all content will be available on demand for our global audience.
We’ve spent the last two months building a conference that will bring data teams together again with 125+ sessions, an incredible line-up of keynotes and countless opportunities to connect with your peers — more than 20,000 data scientists, data engineers, analysts, business leaders and other data professionals.
Our virtual platform launches on 13 November, but here’s a sneak peek at what awaits you. As soon as the platform launches, get a head start by building your agenda and your personal profile to get the most from your conference experience. If you haven’t already registered, there’s still time! General admission is FREE and content will be available live – and on demand after the event.
As you enter the conference you will be welcomed by your personalised dashboard — a home 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 Summit. And keep an eye on your inbox for notifications so you don’t miss any updates.

Dev Hub + Expo
Connect with your peers and sponsors at the Dev Hub + Expo!

You can also learn more about Delta Lake, Apache Spark™, MLflow, Redash 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 to discover recommended sessions/experiences.
