About The Event

Join us for our INTERACT Conference May 25th – 26th, 2021.

We are pleased to announce a cutting edge format that will break the barriers of the virtual environment, making interaction the main event, of our event.  Using a Clubhouse style application of our conference technology, we will be inviting attendees to join roundtable conversations to interact with speakers, and each other, for extremely relevant and provocative topics intended to challenge both the buyers and vendors.

Day one will feature a “no limits” discussion on the 3 misconceptions of ESG – ratings, greenwashing, social washing – by critvocates (critics and advocates) of the corporate and investment industries.  The following panels will break down the data and data gaps in ESG adoption and use in investment strategies.  All these will lead up to our proprietary one-of-a-kind ESG Data Hackathon!

Day 2 will be dedicated to the latest in trade flow, consumer transaction data and tech developments.  We will also present our signature events, Dataset Fresh Features, Alpha Capture for forward looking predictions,Vendors New To Market as well as our two bold INTERACT sessions in a Clubhouse style!  Buyers drive the session discussions that intend to yield energetic and informative conversations between speakers and attendees.

As always, our presenters are world class industry experts and we are booking 1-1 meeting before, during and after the conference! 

Reserve your spot!
