Event description
A virtual unconference from the East to the East, for people that want to make a difference and are open to help others to do just that.

About this Event

This event features the best and most inspiring people anywhere from Eastern Europe all the way to the Far East, regardless where they are from.  We do this to facilitate better cross-cultural understanding, more connections and opportunities for outstanding and collaborative people within our communities.

FORMAT | Virtual Unconference

An unconference is everything that a conference is not. It's casual, fun, all about connections and egalitarian. Most importantly: the guests make the event. Everyone is equal, everyone contributes and everyone can speak their mind. We limit the attendance to 200 people maximum and we spend an amazing, inspiring afternoon together in three cities across Asia virtually: Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. We show up, mingle, get inspired and contribute to inspiring others. We will have 40 minute long presentations running parallel all afternoon in different breakout rooms! More on the format here and here.

THEME | Eastern Opportunities

This time, we will explore the special opportunities of the East and in the East. This is the time to introduce ideas, share a vision, invite partners on board for a venture, discuss the future and lean about others' expectations. As always, we will do this through the lens of the new economy, the digital age and social progress. A speaker can talk about the family's 100 year old jam recipe still... but should explore the special opportunities around it in 2021 and beyond. 

PARTICIPATION | How to attend?

For now, all you need to do is signing up for one of the remaining tickets as long as they last. You may notice that the event is free as it is organized by a community of Easterners that thought this was a worthwhile thing to do in our free time. Beyond participation and engagement, you will be asked to be as open as it gets to follow up and connect with other participants to facilitate action and build friendships across cultures and borders. That's our mission here.

SPEAKERS | Apply to share!

We believe everyone has something to teach or something interesting, inspiring to share. We only invite people and through them their own friends that we believe can meaningfully contribute to the event. So, by all means, feel free to apply to be a speaker and for 40 minutes, a virtual room might be all yours this time or at the next occasion! All speakers are welcome to facilitate a 40 minute engagement of their liking: it can be a TEDx talk with a Q&A at the end, a round-table, but sharing an art portfolio also qualifies. The only rule is to be on the given theme, be authentic and create a good experience for everyone.
