The blood, sweat, and tears that went into putting together China's very first Ladies Who Tech Convention was a revolutionary success. We made history and herstory!
There were almost 1,000 attendees from an array of industries and a further 60k people who were digitally engaged via live streaming on social media platforms. With more than enough ears to go around, the 27 expert speakers had no trouble filling up the Andaz Xintiandi, Shanghai convention spaces to impart their knowledge to the masses.
As an attendee, you were warmly welcomed with a smile and program book as you entered, which then gave you access to a life-changing experience.
In a split second your world expanded from just you to over 1,000 people who could potentially benefit from your skills, knowledge or business and vice versa. As participants were served with delicious bites and bottomless coffee the floor was infused with conversations, which started out as casual introductions and escalated to allies as the day progressed. This was a unique kind of cross-pollination with ample opportunity to learn, and even ask panel speakers further questions after their presentations.
The rich line-up of expert speakers included pioneers from very diverse parts of the tech-industry, meaning that there was literally something for a wide range of interests and tech-fields. Everything from blockchain, gender equality, and e-business enterprise data, to website building, healthcare and so much more.
