    AltiumLive 2020 goes “Virtual”

    Judy Warner
    |  July 2, 2020

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

    And the best part’s free to attend!

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

    We will be sharing more details in the weeks ahead. For now, we’d like to offer you a small glimpse of what you can expect from our first-ever AltiumLive Virtual Summit.


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

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

    Keeping with AltiumLive 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. 


    We 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. You will also find inspiration from thought leaders, your peers, and connections made with members of the Altium team.


    We know a virtual event is not the same as a live event, yet we see a unique opportunity for you to customize your AltiumLive experience. In the wake of the global pandemic, the modern “workplace” is evolving and we want to 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 you 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 your convenience, allowing you to customize your AltiumLive experience.


    Mark your calendars now:
    North America: October 6-8, 2020
    Europe: October 20-22

    Follow us on Social Media for updates:

    We look forward to connecting with you at AltiumLive Virtual Summit in October!
