Vation Ventures technology ecosystem

As technology continues to advance rapidly, it is more important than ever for industry leaders to stay informed and ahead of the curve. Our 2024 Global Summit is designed to do just that by providing a platform for executives to connect, network, and learn from one another.

We’re excited to host our technology ecosystem of global technology executives from our Innovation Advisory Council, leading VC firms, cutting-edge technology companies, executives from technology partners and distributors and other leaders across industries.

Attendees explore how connections across the technology ecosystem  can address challenges, spark innovative solutions, and harness technology effectively. Unlike larger conferences where individual voices can be drowned out, the Summit takes a personalized approach, ensuring every participant enjoys opportunities to make valuable connections and truly stand out.

The Summit offers unparalleled exposure to our diverse technology ecosystem, creating an ideal setting for forging meaningful relationships. What sets our event apart is its dedication to fostering collaboration and innovation. We design experiences that encourage participants to transcend their daily routines and engage deeply to emphasize how integral relationships are to the tech sector.
