AltiumLive 2020 Goes 'Virtual'

Reading time ( words)

Like most events in 2020, Altium is transitioning its annual flagship conference, AltiumLive, to an online experience this year. Altium will host its North American event from October 6-8, and the European event from October 20-22, 2020. Both events are free to attend.

While nothing can duplicate the experience of a live event or being physically together, Altium is busy planning ways to deliver its unique AltiumLive experience in the first-ever AltiumLive 2020 Virtual Summit.  As always, Altium will provide a dynamic approach to Learn, Connect, and Get Inspired in the convenience of your home or workplace. Making the conference both virtual and free of cost should remove the limits of time, travel, workload, and budget, enabling many more users and members of the design community to attend. 

Altium will be sharing more details in the weeks ahead. Here is a small glimpse of what you can expect from the first-ever AltiumLive Virtual Summit.


Is AltiumLive “Live?” Yes, and it’s on-demand too. As usual, Altium will be featuring some of the industry’s top experts to present live sessions. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in a live chat following each session. 

In addition to eight live presentations, Altium will also offer many pre-recorded (original) sessions that you can watch in a timeframe that works best for you. This includes courses from Altium staff, fellow Altium Design engineers, and supply chain experts.  

Keeping with tradition, Altium will also be sharing a (pre-release) live demonstration of Altium Designer 21.

AltiumLive Virtual Summit will provide attendees with multiple opportunities to network with fellow engineers, Altium staff, and sponsors who will share insights from crucial areas of the supply chain. There will also be a few surprises along the way, so stay connected. Please look for the latest news and updates via email and on all our social media channels, including upcoming registration information. 

Get Inspired
The company will be sharing some Altium Stories from talented design engineers from within the Altium Community who will inspire you with fresh ideas and leave you excited about the work you do every day. Attendees will also find inspiration from thought leaders, your peers, and connections made with members of the Altium team.

Your “Customized” AltiumLive Experience
A virtual event is not the same as a live event, but there is a unique opportunity for attendees to customize their AltiumLive experiences. In the wake of the global pandemic, the modern workplace is evolving and Altium will meet you where you are in 2020. For instance, the “live” presentations will take place over three days, in half-day segments, which will allow attendees to get the most out of AltiumLive while still remaining productive with your day-to-day roles and responsibilities. The remainder of the sessions and activities are optional and can be enjoyed at each attendee’s convenience.
