.conf21 is almost here! Can you feel it?


This year’s coveted Splunk event is more accessible than ever, as the entire conference will be available online. From October 19-20 (AMER) and October 20-21 (APAC) you’ll have access to several different types of engaging sessions meant to empower you with knowledge, skills, and all the fun you can possibly handle. The .conf21 FAQ outlines what’s in store and will help you get geared up and organized so that your .conf21 experience is totally optimal.

Sessions, Speakers, and Much, Much More From the Splunk Community!

Community members contribute in various ways across many event sessions and breakout tracks. Two places in particular to pay attention to in order to get the latest from the Splunk Community are the Splunk4U and SplunkTrust tracks. The Splunk4U track combines sessions on community, DEI, Splunk for Good, and Splunk Using Splunk. The SplunkTrust track features in-depth technical sessions from our most experienced MVP’s.

Get in With the SplunkTrust!


The SplunkTrust is an amazing group of top contributors to our Splunk community. This is our second year of the SplunkTrust Track and we’ve nearly doubled the sessions from last year! Want Splunk Pro-Tips? You’ll find them in these sessions! The SplunkTrust Virtual Induction ceremony will take place on Monday, October 18th at 4:00 pm PDT. Watch it on our Splunk Twitch channel. Members of the SplunkTrust and Splunk employees will be answering your questions at Ask the Experts.

  • Share your learnings, build your networks, learn from peers, and find mentors in User Groups. Wherever you are, there’s a group nearby to lift you up and carry you off to Splunk success. Meetings are currently virtual, so you can join a user group in any part of the world!
  • Chat in real-time with other community members in our Splunk Community Slack and network with other .conf20 attendees in the #conf21 channel.
  • Your ideas come to life with Splunk’s Ideas program. Customers and partners can submit feedback and ideas related to new and improved Splunk features that actually become a part of the product!
  • Don't forget to stop by the many .conf21 virtual lounges this year! You can swing by the Community Lounge and connect with members live, learn about Community programs, and more! And you absolutely can't miss our Customer Success lounge for the download on best practices, cloud success, and expert services, as well as the chance to win amazing prizes like an Oculus Quest, Ipad, or AirPods Pro!
  • Last but not least, we've got some fabulous community leaders hosting a virtual chat for attendees off-hours, so sign up and stop on by! (This is a fun digital place for community members to hang out and chat when there aren't any .conf21 broadcasts.)

We trust that .conf21 will surpass all of your expectations and offer you helpful information that you can bring back to your practice and interest in Splunk - for good!
