I'd like to share with you an email our CEO Adam Selipsky sent to Tableau Conference attendees earlier today:
We believe the best response is to carry on as normally as possible to show our collective resilience and the force we can be for positive change. As such, we look forward to gathering at Tableau Conference to share and learn from each other, albeit with heavy hearts.
I want to thank all our customers, partners, sponsors, and the Las Vegas citizens, who have reached out with their support. We are extremely thankful that our team members who are already in Las Vegas are safe.
Our first priority is the safety of our attendees and we have increased security measures for TC17. We are in close contact with the venues and local authorities in Las Vegas to ensure everyone is able to have a safe and enjoyable experience.
We have also heard from many of you, full of compassion and eager to help. We’re encouraged by your spirit. We are pledging a contribution to the National Compassion Fund to support the victims and their families. In addition, we will provide opportunities next week for all of us to help those affected.
In the meantime, one way to contribute is to donate blood to your local blood bank. Visit redcrossblood.org to find a donation station near you, or follow the #data17donates to join a blood drive during next week’s conference.
For more information about next week’s events, please visit the Tableau TC17 Response FAQ page. Also, look for updates from the Tableau Conference team in your email and in the #Data17 mobile app.
In moments like this, we find strength in community. We at Tableau are eager to stand together with you.
Looking forward to seeing you next week,
