About this event

"The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings." - Kakuzo Okakura

What links 7,000+ events, 3M+ attendees & fireside chats with Zoom CEO Eric Yuan? A lot it seems.

With the promise of 'Freedom Day' on the horizon in Scotland, it begs the question: what next for events? Will we rebound back to in person, stay long on virtual or a mix of the two?

To help us navigate the uncertainty ahead, we've called on Brian Corcoran (Turing Fest) & Rob Gelb (HeySummit) for a deep dive into the world of events.

[Panel] (Turing Fest/HeySummit)

Brian Corcoran is the Founder & CEO of Turing Fest, one of Europe's top cross-functional tech conferences. From the strategic side to the tactical, the technical execution to the commercial, the product parts to the human - their community comes together every year in Edinburgh to learn, to teach, to have fun, and to get better at what they do.

Previous speakers include Zoom Founder Eric Yuan, Intercom Founder Des Traynor & SparkToro co-Founder Rand Fishkin.

Rob Gelb is the CEO of HeySummit that 1,000s use to plan, manage, and run virtual summits online. HeySummit customers have run 7,000+ events, 3M+ attendees, and they’ve made over $11m in ticket revenue in the past year.

Rob is also Founder & CEO of Kindaba, a platform to communicate, organise, and make memories with other members of your family.

Since the success of our 2020 End of Year Social, we wanted to keep things lively and provide a virtual space for connection to catch up with old friends, make new ones and share grand ideas and learnings with each other. With that in mind, we’re excited to invite you to use Remo!

Remo is a virtual platform where you can interact face-to-face and move around a ‘room’ to different tables to meet and talk with other people.

We’ve set up to a few themed tables to get the conversation going with ecosystem experts as well as some space to chat at the ‘bar’ and some sofas for one-on-one conversations.

Themed Table Plan

- Money Matters

- Workplace Culture

- Marketing & Messages

- Talent & Team

- Creative Entrepreneurs

- Health & Mindset

- Startup Legals

- Community

- Chat at the bar & jump to a sofa a 1-1

If you’ve not used Remo before here is a quick introduction to the platform (it’s really easy)!
