Big Design 2020 is just a few days away! I hope you’re as excited to get started as we are!
Here are some answers to your most frequently asked questions:

How will this virtual conference work?

This year’s conference will be hosted on Crowdcast, an integrated streaming platform that is designed for the purpose of attendee engagement. Over the course of four days, we’ll be streaming twenty-four 20-minute pre-recorded talks. Each talk will be followed by a live Q&A session with the speaker.

How do I access the conference? 

Ticket holders can access the conference here: 2020 Big Design Conference

Will we have access to the recorded talks after the conference?

Can we still get tickets?

How can you network at a virtual conference?

Networking is a cornerstone of our annual event and attendees will be able to engage with each other through interactive Q&A, chat, and polls to facilitate real conversation. We encourage attendees to introduce themselves, share LinkedIn contact information, and post links to job opportunities in the chat.

What is the conference hashtag for social media?

Please use #bigd20 as the official conference hashtag. Post on any social platform, such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, etc. We will have some student volunteers at UNT and UTD providing sketchnotes and taking pictures of the conference talks.

What is this year’s conference theme?

The year’s theme is Building a Future Legacy. You will hear talks about ways to collaborate online, hire/manage multi-generational teams, dealing with imposter syndrome, product demos, and more.
