WIRED Smarter event

WeAreTechWomen has teamed up with WIRED to give you a chance to win a complimentary place to WIRED Smarter.

For 2020, WIRED is delighted to announce that its business conference, WIRED Smarter, will transform into a virtual event, and will premiere as a six-part conference broadcast series across October 13-15.

The same compelling content, now available virtually

With its foundation as a credible source of compelling discussion from fascinating speakers, the multi-tracked programme will continue to brief senior executives on critical business trends and innovation through a series of digestible keynotes, anecdotal sessions and meaningful connections.

Curated by WIRED’s award-winning editorial team, each of the six 90-minute episodes will feature innovators in business, technology, retail and sustainability. Join us for the broadcast – all run in real time – and have the opportunity to submit questions for live speaker Q&As and network with fellow attendees.

What is different and/or new for 2020?

The WIRED team have thought long and hard about the best way to translate our incredibly dynamic and awe-inspiring in-person events into a virtual experience. Although running virtually translates into many benefits for our attendees, there are some critical differences:

Accessible and virtual: We are charging only nominal fees for the most basic access to all of the conference content. This offers our attendees around the world the benefit of cutting all travel and accomodation costs, and allow them the freedom to enjoy the content in the comfort of their home or office.

Punchy, dynamic content: We know that you’re busy, so we have designed the programme to run as punchy 90-minute sessions – twice a day (morning and afternoon), for three days. All three morning sessions cover industry-agnostic topics; each of the afternoon sessions are dedicated to a different track (retail, fintech, growth).

Optional upgrades for networking: We’ve listened to your feedback, and understand that networking, brainstorming and speaking with peers is a key reason to attend events. That’s why we added in a few additional – optional – upgrades that give you access to 1-to-1 chats with other attendees, and access to the workshop with Accenture. This is a fantastic way to get into the active WIRED community of influencers, startups / scaleup founders, investors and technologists – and hopefully, a way to keep us connected during these unprecedented times.

WeAreTechWomen are delighted to confirm we have four complimentary places to offer to our members – tickets will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
