Sydney, Australia, has been chosen as the latest location for the global Millennial 20/20 Summit.
Recent Millennial Summits have attracted close to 3,000 attendees in London, New York and Singapore. The Sydney Millennial 20/20 Summit will be held at Carriageworks on 14-15 November 2017.
The Millennial 20/20 series is an experiential gathering designed to celebrate the modern age of commerce and business powered by the millennials and future generations. The Summit will focus on the impact of technology and how it is altering consumer interaction with brands in sectors such as finance, retail, entertainment, tourism, FMCG and more.
Simon Berger, founding partner of Millennial 20/20, says: “The Millennial generation have unprecedented access to technology that makes the way they deal with brands more complex than any preceding generation. The Millennial 20/20 Summits have been created to showcase how the leading global organisations and start-ups are interacting with this new breed of consumer.”
Co-founder Rupa Ganatra, adds: “Each element of our event offers more of an experience than the traditional conference model, from the venue, to the programme and exhibition format, even through to the food and beverage. I can assure delegates that they won’t have experienced anything like it before.”
NSW deputy premier and minister for skills, John Barilaro, predicts the Millennial 20/20 Summit will prove to be an iconic event for New South Wales.
“This event will further strengthen our reputation as a world-leader in technology, innovation and finance.
“With its energy and entrepreneurial spirit, Sydney is the natural choice for an event that focuses on innovation, disruption and technology and only adds to New South Wales’ standing as a global technology leader.”
Millennial 20/20 has partnered with the creative team at Hannover Fairs Australia, also based in Sydney, to stage the event.
Lauren Greschner, event head, says she is “excited to be rethinking the traditional conference model to deliver a new experience for delegates”.
