We’re excited to share that the BlinkOn conference is returning to a bi-annual schedule and BlinkOn 12 planning has already begun. BlinkOn 12 will take place in April 2020 in London.
Event Venue: Google Tech Corners Campus, Sunnivale, California, USA

All mainstage sessions will take place in Comic-Con, which is located in SVL-TC6, and be livestreamed to the following rooms:
A video conference link will be auto-generated for all breakout sessions.

For those of you who are hosting a breakout session, please use the last 10 digits to present to the video conference unit and to record your session. Please feel free to ask Googlers present in your session for assistance on how to do this.
This means attendees will have the opportunity to shape BlinkOn 11's agenda like never before. Here's how this will work:
