What not to miss and how to make the most of re:Invent 2020 for the public sector

Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent is back for 2020, and for the first time it’s all virtual and free. AWS re:Invent has become the world’s premier cloud learning event, and this year, we’ll feature sessions focused on how public sector organizations are using the cloud to improve the lives of constituents, patients, customers, and more.

At re:Invent 2020, attendees can expect to learn about AWS services from recognized world experts, focus on key services that matter most to your organizations, get technical questions answered on the spot, and get immediate access to what’s new. With the virtual format, you won’t have to worry about factoring in travel time—enjoy sessions from the comfort of your home or office.

The event, kicking off on November 30 and lasting three weeks through December 18, will feature keynotes, leadership sessions, lightning talks, and core sessions tailored for the public sector. To help you make the most of re:Invent 2020, we created the AWS re:Invent Public Sector Virtual Attendee Guide. The guide outlines key content for the public sector both in and out of the public sector track, as well as guidance and tips on building your personal agenda for the event.

Attendees can get the same content no matter where they are in the world, and don’t worry about grabbing a seat. Content will be aired first in the Americas, then in Asia Pacific, and finally in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, with all content available on demand immediately following air time. For the international audiences, there will be sessions in Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, and more.

Anyone can attend the keynotes, from chief executive officer (CEO) of AWS Andy Jassy to chief technology officer and vice president of Amazon Werner Vogels. Check out leadership sessions from vice president of worldwide public sector and regulatory industries businesses at AWS, Teresa Carlson, and vice president of worldwide public sector partners and programs, Sandy Carter. Beyond these leadership sessions, choose your adventure: enjoy sessions from beginner to advanced, pop into a lightning talk, or chat live with technical experts. And the learning doesn’t stop in 2020; a second wave of sessions will be available in January.

Find sessions for the public sector, featuring government, education, healthcare, nonprofit, and aerospace and satellite customers both in and out of the public sector track. For example, learn about Service Workbench on AWS from Harvard Medical School, advancing the future of space in the cloud with Maxar Technologies, or agile governance on AWS GovCloud (US) from Lockheed Martin. Learn more about all of these sessions in the AWS re:Invent Public Sector Virtual Attendee Guide and in the re:Invent 2020 online catalog (available after you register).

Don’t forget to check out some conversations on topics like women in leadership, featuring Amazon board member and former chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi, or reimagining the global workforce featuring professor and founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab.
