Going Virtual, Bill Nye and More: A SIGNAL 2020 UpdateAustin Whiting
The world has changed significantly since COVID-19 hit the world early in 2020, and there still are many unknowns. As a result, Twilio announced it has rescheduled this year’s SIGNAL event to September 30th – October 1st, and would be going fully virtual as a response to this pandemic. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution to support the efforts of local health and government agencies in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area to mitigate the impact of the pandemic.
Event adjustments aside, we are ramping up to host the digital engagement event of the year. We cannot wait to host developers, business leaders, marketers, and more at SIGNAL 2020 to discuss the future of communications and digital acceleration.
This year we will be providing the same impactful and inspiring speakers and break out sessions, hands-on Superclass, and Q&A with Twilio experts.
“Twilio has continually delivered on an experience that encourages and empowers creators. SIGNAL is an opportunity to learn from and celebrate the community.” -2019 Attendee
A core value at Twilio and Twilio SendGrid is “the future is ours to write” and so we are enthusiastic to recreate our event to provide the best virtual conference experience possible.
Let’s get into the details. There are some exciting updates we’d like to share.
First off, our speakers
We know as well as anyone else, the speakers and experts who are part of an event are what makes it the most meaningful. Let’s meet a few who’ll be at SIGNAL 2020…
