Welcome to CogX

Introducing CogXtras
Launching 2nd September

Our ambition is to be the most inclusive and forward-thinking community of leaders, CEOs, entrepreneurs, scientists, policy makers, artists and activists in the world.
And to enable them to share, learn and connect with each other seamlessly online.

Following the success of CogX 2020, over three days, 44,000 attendees, including 1200+ speakers and 3000+ global leaders came together to enjoy expert-led 18 topics.

And we did not want to stop there. Especially now that the 'New World of Work' is here to stay, we are creating a year-round programme of weekly, single topic, virtual events beginning on the 2nd September 2020.

Topics Launching in September 2020

Economy & Future of Work
Building the economy with people at its heart
Ethics and Society
Building tech that works for everyone
Planet, Smart Cities & Space
Interconnected earth and cities
Industry 4.0 and Sustainable Supply Chains
Building resilient and sustainable systems

Why CogXtras?

Running our first virtual CogX taught us so much, that we did not want to waste any time in giving you more of what you want. More CogXs! We made tweaks to our current model to suit your needs better and instead of one big CogX each year (which will still run annually) we will be running a mini CogX every week!

Intelligent recommendations

We will recommend networking opportunities, topics and sessions that are most relevant to you based on your objectives and interests.

World's Leading Thinkers

Our editorially-led, and co-curated “Live Conversations” will deep dive into industry trends and topics from the 18 topics at CogX this year. Same topics but focussed for you.

No more fomo

You do not have to jump between sessions in fear of missing out on all other 17 topics and its sessions. Each CogXtra will focus on one topic, giving you a more tailored focussed experience.

Lead generation

Using our analytics, receive better-targeted audience, leads, and insights into their engagement with your content, in-booth sessions and profile.

Amplify your virtual booth

Drive meeting requests as you enrich your booth with your session agenda, booth representatives profiles, and product showcase & descriptions.

Maximise ROI

With our intelligent recommendations, we will match you with the people you want to meet with.
