RootsTech, the world’s biggest family history show, will return to London for the second year in a row.

Speaking in his keynote address at RootsTech 2020 in Salt Lake City, Steve Rockwood, FamilySearch International CEO, announced that the popular family history website will hold its 2020 London show from 5 to 7 November at the ExCeL centre.

RootsTech’s first international event was held in London in October 2019, and attracted nearly 10,000 attendees from 42 countries, as well as 1,300 online attendees.

“RootsTech London 2019 was a pilot test for us, and it was a tremendous experience,” Steve Rockwood said.

“The event proved to be a great way to bring people from all around the world together to celebrate the joy of family discovery.”

RootsTech London 2020 will offer over 150 classes on all aspects of family history, one-on-one expert consultations and an exhibition hall with stalls from family history companies and organisations.

Keynote speakers at last year’s event included musician and entertainer Donny Osmond, historian and TV presenter Dan Snow and Paralympic gold medallist Kadeena Cox, and more inspirational speakers are promised this year.

Early bird registration is now open, with discount tickets available at £79 for all three days, £39 for one day and £19 for a virtual pass.

Jen Allen, the event director, said: “Whether you’re an experienced family historian or just a little curious and want to learn things about yourself or your family that you’ve never known before, there’s something for you at RootsTech.”
