DrupalCon Global Announced

The Open Source Digital Experience Conference - Online Everywhere | July 14-17, 2020

Thank you to this awesome community for your patience as we navigate the effects of COVID-19 and its impact on our desire to gather at DrupalCon in Minneapolis in May. Canceling DrupalCon Minneapolis was the right decision, but it didn’t make it any less painful for all involved.  Thank you to the volunteers, sponsors, staff, vendors, and attendees that supported DrupalCon Minneapolis along the way. 

Now, more than ever, is the time to celebrate community and the power of open source. In the Drupal spirit of being flexible and adaptable, the Drupal Association is excited to announce the first-ever virtual DrupalCon experience! Mark your calendars to join us for DrupalCon Global: The Open Source Digital Experience Conference, online everywhere, July 14-17, 2020.

Our event organizers and volunteers are working hard to bring you a virtual version of the DrupalCon experience you know and love. DrupalCon is a mission-centric program of the Drupal Association designed to bring people together to share thought leadership around open source and ambitious digital experiences, provide professional development opportunities to enhance your career and your organization, and invigorate Drupal project momentum.  With all of the uncertainty in the world, you can be certain that we are working hard to provide an outstanding DrupalCon experience complete with new innovations made possible by this virtual format.  


To better accommodate our global community, we'll be expanding the start and end times of the scheduled programming each day and offering specific moments of live networking and togetherness for regional communities throughout the event. Both for the sake of our speakers and staff, this won't be a 24/7 event, but because much of the content will be available to ticket-holders on demand, you'll have the freedom to participate at the time you choose. 

Be part of the excitement! DrupalCon Global is not just another webinar, but an interactive experience offering the opportunity to make connections that will fuel you and the project well after the event. Here’s a glimpse of what you expect at the virtual event:

  • Driesnote - A DrupalCon tradition! Project founder, Dries Buytaert, celebrates recent successes and details the vision for where Drupal is going next
  • Keynote Presentations - Open source industry leaders will be featured daily 
  • Community Connection - the much-loved “hallway track” will be reconfigured for the virtual experience with ample time dedicated to facilitated and organic conversations with fellow attendees  
  • Professional Development - Through a variety of new session formats and program features, you will have the chance to boost your skills in a variety of areas 
  • Expanded Global Audience - There are more than 1 million Drupal users worldwide! Without the boundaries of physical attendance, DrupalCon Global will truly be an opportunity to connect on an international level!
  • On-Demand Content Library -  Access to plenary presentations and featured speaker content, curated lists of the sessions selected for Meet the Speaker, on-demand event video, and special attendee-only content by stakeholder organizations
