LCIO is a persistency framework and event data model originally developed to foster closer collaboration among the international groups conducting simulation studies for future linear colliders. In the twenty years since its introduction at CHEP 2003 it has formed the backbone for ILC and CLIC physics and detector studies. It has also been successfully employed to study and develop other collider and fixed-target experiments, as well has having been adopted by several detector R&D groups such as CALICE. It has been a remarkably successful collaborative development that has served a number of disparate communities. We intend to discuss the history of the development of LCIO and show how it is being used in simulation studies, testbeam campaigns and running experiments today, a full two decades after its introduction.
