Blog Posts, Speaker Announcements, and Event Updates

2000 FOUNDERS, INVESTORS, AND DECISION MAKERS
200 GAME-CHANGING STARTUPS
70 ROUND-TABLE DISCUSSIONS
50 KEYNOTES, PANELS, AND FIRESIDES
2 GALA EVENTS

SESSIONS, TRACKS & ENTERTAINMENT

The Main Stage is packed full, from sun up to sun down, with highly engaging content from some of the biggest names in tech. Keynotes on cutting edge growth tactics, firesides between industry veterans, and panels with the brightest minds in their respective fields.

The Startup Stage is where each of our 200 hand-picked startups will pitch in front of industry-specific investors. Sessions are grouped by vertical (whether it’s AI, Blockchain, Biotech, VR/AR, Robotics, etc.) and will each pitch in front of investors specifically focused on that sector. Did I mention the top 15 startups get to pitch on the Main Stage to close the conference (and an exclusive invite to the VIP-only Startup Gala immediately afterward) Psst… we’re still accepting startup applications… APPLY TO EXHIBIT!

EXHIBITION HALL

All those startups that are pitching on the Startup Stage, they’ll also get a table to demo their product in the Exhibition Hall. This is prime real estate, the best opportunity for massive reach, get interviewed by tech journalists, and shoot the breeze with countless hungry investors.

ROUNDTABLES & 1-1 MEETINGS

There are 70+ roundtables, all led by investors, growth hackers, and various industry experts. Each attendee gets to schedule a seat at these intimate, ten-person discussion groups, focused on specific topics from raising funding to hiring your sales team.

Through our simple-to-use event app we make the ability to connect and schedule meetings with any other attendees completely seamless. Fill up both days with meetings if you feel so inclined. Land your next media partner, enterprise client, or lead investor.

NETWORKING & GALA EVENTS

Each night we’ve got a number of networking pub crawls that all attendees are encouraged to engage in. But we’ve got two VIP Gala events as well, one on each night. These Galas are exclusive to speakers and VIP ticket-holders only. The Speaker Dinner (Gala night one) will feature all main stage speakers as well as select investors and VIPs. The Startup Dinner (Gala night two) will feature the Top 15 startups selected to pitch on the Main Stage, in addition to speakers and VIPs.
