The stage is yours
Conferences shape people and professions. We've known this since the ancient Greeks gathered in the agora and put their minds together to solve important issues of life and enterprise.
Today most professions have their own conference scene in every major region throughout the world. Over a million conferences are held every year, involving hundreds of million of attendees, offline & online, and a vast body of dynamic knowledge.
As our world continues to get more complex, more connected and ever more globalized we are under pressure to adapt and change, to learn and be inspired, and constantly build our personal network. The conference is the perfect solution: A social space like no other, created for knowledge-based interaction, human enterprise and sheer excitement.
Yet when it comes to conferences in the digital age, much can be improved. What you see on Conferize.com today is the first fundamental attempt to bring transparency to conferences themselves, as well as the influencers and knowledge related to conferences. We call it The New Conference.
Please join us in our quest to reinvent conferences and professional events for the 21st century.
In the fall of 2011 Conferize saw first light at DEMO, Arctic15, F.ounders II, and Pitch’11. We came out of stealth in the beautiful spring of 2012.
