The 5th edition of the Worldwide Talks will take place this Thursday, September 9th, and will offer its global audience a 15-hours of program. Starting at 8 am EST, the event will have 70+ speakers and, among them, big companies and up-and-coming talents.
With the delta variant of covid-19 surging, we have once again decided to go fully digital. However, that possibly is the best thing for our audience. What is a better way to learn about innovation in the fashion-tech industry than from the comfort of your home? 1 million people who watched our talks in the year 2020 agree with us!
Our attendees will get the chance to learn from leaders from diverse industries. That includes fashion, technology, venture capital and so much more. And most importantly, it is completely free!
Why You Should Attend
Normally, our events can be observed online even when the talk is held physically. However, the fact that everything is taking place digitally means that there is a chance for our attendees to engage more in-depth with our speakers. Meaning, we will have an interactive area, a surprise “game”, a pitch competition, and the opportunity to directly interact with the speakers. With the vaccines quickly being developed, this year might be the last year for our attendees to have this fully digital experience.
Take a break from your 9 to 5 job, and come get inspired and learn. Our Worldwide Talks may be the reason for you to take a different direction in your career. It may educate you on new technologies to adopt into your supply chain. It may be a wake-up call for you to start a business that you always wanted to start… or it may simply INSPIRE you! Regardless of the reasons for your attendance, we welcome anyone. The only thing you need to provide is your time and engagement!
