The programme focuses on tools for post-pandemic recovery.


The first details of the Knowledge Programme for IBTM Wired have been released, with over 30 topical education sessions and four high-profile keynote speakers confirmed for the event’s duration from 28 June to 1 July 2021.

IBTM Wired has partnered with leading international industry associations, visionaries and thought leaders to create a truly global four-day education programme. Each day will focus on a different region of the world, providing a packed schedule of live and on-demand education sessions open to both Hosted Buyers and visitors.

From hybrid events and sustainability to women in leadership, technology, safety and trends, each day will provide valuable learning experiences, inspirational ideas and the sharing of best practices giving professionals the key tools they need for the next chapter in meetings and events.

Keynote speakers include:

  • Stephen Attenborough, Commercial Director for Virgin Galactic
  • Monique Morrow, Senior Distinguished Architect for Emerging Technologies at Syniverse Technologies and President and Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet
  • CNN contributor and Atlanta radio host Aaron Paxton Arnold
  • Rocket scientist turned award-winning professor, number one bestselling author and internationally acclaimed speaker Ozan Varol.

Event Manager Michael Jones said: “IBTM’s well-respected Knowledge Programme will form a central part of IBTM Wired. We know from our research and from talking to our partners and clients that our industry is hungry for opportunities to continue learning, even if they cannot attend an event in person. Our fresh and diverse line-up of speakers for IBTM Wired will help attendees thrive post-pandemic, providing them with inspiration, tools and tangible learnings that they can take away and apply to their businesses.”

The majority of sessions will be live to facilitate audience interaction and engagement, with a facility to ask questions to speakers in real-time. The virtual event platform, built by Sector Global, will be open 24 hours a day for the event’s duration so that the global community can tailor their schedule to their time zone.

IBTM Wired will unite professionals from across the world for four days of one-to-one business meetings, networking sessions and a programme of live and on-demand education sessions curated by sector, skillset, and geographic location. The event is a permanent addition to IBTM’s global portfolio of B2B events and intelligence for the meetings, incentives, conferences and events industry.
