The 2020 Libertarian National Convention will be an event in which delegates of the U.S. Libertarian Party will choose the party's nominees for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The convention will be held from May 21–25, 2020, at the JW Marriott Downtown Austin Luxury Hotel in Austin, Texas.[2][3]

In early 2019, the Libertarian Party held a contest, allowing members to decide the 2020 convention theme, charging $5 a vote.[4] On April 11, it was announced that the winning theme was "TANSTAAFL",[5] an acronym for "There Ain't No Such Thing As a Free Lunch", a libertarian economic concept popularized by Chicagoan school economist Milton Friedman.[6] The phrase was also embodied in the Libertarian Party's first logo, adopted in 1972, in an image known as the "Libersign".[7]

The theme contest raked in $24,007 for the LP to gear towards convention expenses.[5]

Convention speakers

According to the convention website, the following notable people are scheduled speakers:[8]

Delegate allocation

Delegates to the convention will be allocated based on the number of sustaining members of the national Libertarian Party per state, as well as the percentage of the vote cast by state in the 2016 presidential election for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. Delegates will vote for changes to the national party's platform and bylaws, on members of the Libertarian National Committee and on the party's 2020 presidential and vice-presidential nominees.[9]
