About the Summit

On March 1st and 2nd, top industry practitioners exposed the steps of their conversation design process. They showcased real-life projects and case studies. They presented the design artifacts that they rely on.

Attendees received a goodie bag of worksheets, blueprints, and frameworks to use in their own design process. 🛍 

What to Expect

w

DOERS, not TALKERS

Every speaker at the summit works on conversational technology day in and day out. They’re the real deal.

ACTUAL NETWORKING

Covid, you can’t stop us anymore. We’re bringing back real networking opportunities (safely!) How? ⬇️ 

DESIGN PRACTICUM

A 4-hour hands-on conversation design swarm with experts Surya Vanka and Brielle Nickoloff. Come with nothing, leave with a chatbot.

Networking


The digital hosting platform that we use (Gather.town) will make you feel like you’re in a physical space interacting with other attendees and speakers. 

You move your avatar around the virtual conference space, bump into new people, and hop into group conversations.

But because we’re offering this real(ish) networking world, tickets are extremely limited!

Speakers

They’re not here to give a pitch. They don’t have to. We’re paying them to be here.
