Speakers & MODERATORS


The Summit program will be a combination of all-delegate plenary sessions and smaller breakout sessions, with plenary sessions including keynote addresses, open Q&As, panel discussions, and on-stage “demo’s” (please inquire if you are interested to “demo” from stage or have an “exhibit” on the conference floor).

We select many of the speakers/presenters from the pool of WTN members and World Technology Award nominees registering to attend. As such, we will be posting a regularly updated program and speakers list in the coming weeks and months leading up to the event.
