Say hello to CogXtras. Our all new weekly format, launching tomorrow.

Following the success of the first fully virtual CogX Festival, we are excited to bring you our year round programme of 30+ CogXtras - weekly half day virtual events with all the elements of the festival: the virtual expo, side events, networking at scale and covering all 18 CogX topics one at at time.

Our Mission

"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.

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

But we did not want to stop there. Especially now that the 'New World of Work' is here to stay. So we have created a year-round programme of CogXtra’s - weekly, single topic, half day virtual events - beginning on the 2nd September 2020.

These unique events are co-curated with our partners around a single topic selected from the 18 CogX Festival stages, including Global Leadership, the Cutting Edge, Ethics, Health & Well-Being, Planet and Smart Cities, Next-Gen Infrastructure, Fintech and the Future of Financial Services, GenZ and much more."
