A message from Tooey

I’d like to start by thanking you all for being loyal partners and customers of Procore and members of this incredible community. The well-being of this community—our customers, employees, and partners—is always our top priority. 

Out of concern for the safety of your teams and ours, in light of global precautions around COVID-19, and in alignment with recommendations laid out by the CDC, WHO, and others, we have decided to transition Groundbreak to a virtual event this year. 

There is no doubt in my mind that we can bring you a Groundbreak like never before, at a time when we all need to connect and learn together to overcome the challenges posed by the current pandemic and recession. 

We will update you via email and on this site when we are ready to unveil more details around our first ever virtual Groundbreak. Until then, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay tuned via our “notify me” list if you want to be the first to know when we have more to share. 


Why has Groundbreak 2020 been changed from an in-person event to a virtual event?

Based upon information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and other authorities, physical gatherings will continue to present risk for coronavirus transmission into the foreseeable future. The safety of our customers, partners, and employees takes precedence over other factors. For this reason, we've decided to replace the in-person conference with a virtual experience. We’re excited to deliver an online event that will bring you the same energy you’ve come to expect, while also enabling us to engage in new, inventive ways to connect.

When will virtual Groundbreak take place?

We are planning for a virtual Groundbreak experience for Fall 2020 and will update the conference website in August with the confirmed event dates.
