TCEA 2020: What Not to Miss


As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas. And TCEA 2020 is no exception. There are over 1,000 sessions taking place during the conference. With only 5 days, and only 24 hours in those days (some of which we hope you’ll be sleeping during), there’s no way you’ll be able to get to every session. That’s where this blog comes in. Several friends and customers of Texthelp are leading sessions at TCEA that we highly recommend. Check out our list, and hopefully you’ll find some that strike your fancy! 

And if you ever need a break from sessions, be sure to stop by Booth #1350 to say hello to the Texthelp team!
