Planning to attend one of North America’s fastest growing tech-conferences? This is the guide for you!

As the world passes its one year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, Collision organizers are preparing to host the second Collision from Home, a virtual tech conference bringing together “the world’s best speakers,” tech’s leading companies, and top media. 

From April 20 – 22, Collision from Home attendees will participate from all around the world, live-streaming talks from tech CEOs, international policymakers, and global cultural figures. The speaker list includes top executives from Facebook, Y Combinator, Amazon, Twitter, Salesforce, and more.

This year’s conference is expecting 40,000 attendees including over 1,250 startups, 1,000 investors, and 500 speakers! Collision from Home will be hosted on their proprietary software, which will allow attendees from over 100 countries to connect and learn in a variety of innovative ways. 

Known as North America’s fastest-growing tech conference, Collision from Home will provide you with incredible speakers, professional development and valuable networking opportunities. Through the Collision from Home app, you can:

  • Build Connections: Browse the global list of Collision from Home attendees, partner companies, media, investors, and startups. The algorithm analyzes your interests, industry and current connections to recommend people you should get in touch with.
  • Start a Conversation with Any Collision Attendee: Collision is welcoming more than 40,000 attendees this year. Connect with who you want to meet to drive your business forward. Discover new contacts and generate leads from wherever you are in the world. You may even meet your future business partner, mentor, colleague or investor!
  • Make Face-to-Face Calls: As we know, nothing can beat an exciting and genuine face-to-face conversation, but Collision does a great job at trying to replicate that experience. Participate in one-on-one or group calls with like-minded attendees. 
  • Join Lounges: Meet attendees from around the globe by joining groups recommended for you, or create your own. (Set your meeting as invite-only, or make it public so Collision’s 40,000 attendees can discover and join.)
  • Watch Unlimited Content: Along with tech’s leaders, Collision has gathered authors, athletes, actors and musicians to talk about how tech touches their industries, covering more than 30 different topics. Listen to more than 100+ hours of premium content including talks, Q&As and unique experiences. Collision will use your user-specific information to suggest live-streamed talks that benefit your needs.
