StartUp Day 2020 Virtual Conference

The International Trade Council is looking to host a virtual (online) StartUp Day on the 9th December 2020.

This will be a online event which combines keynote presentations, panel discussions and StartUp advisory sessions. Speakers will also be able to work 1:1 with groups of startups in virtual rooms to network, answer questions and provide live mentoring.

What To Expect

To ensure quality of video and ease of participation for speakers we will pre-record all presentations (except live audience Q&A’s and ‘virtual mentor rooms’) .

The pre-recorded presentations will run according to the “live” agenda  and event the speakers will log in and will be able to  answer audience questions via live chat and “on screen” live video.

Speakers and attendees will also be able to request, accept (or decline) and hold 1:1 “virtual” face-to-face live meetings and virtual “round tables” with up to 16 attendees in your “booth”.

You will be able to network, share experiences, arrange meetings, connect and form lasting relationships!
