Wide range of networking opportunities available

The aim of the event is to help attendees connect and collaborate across disciplines, sectors, domains and countries - to inspire new thinking and help move things forward with concrete action.

The Expo

The Expo floor features Booths and Pavilions, giving you the opportunity to engage with new connections, share your propositions, arrange meetings and network with your target audience to have the most constructive conversations.

Startup Programme

CogX’s Startup Programme brings together the most innovative startups operating within the ecosystem. Our Startup Zone will host many of the most exciting startups, pitch stages and talks. It’s also the most affordable way to access the stages - and meet potential investors, mentors, partners, customers and collaborators across the Festival.

The Startup Zone is a unique opportunity for networking. Search and book meetings as well as keep track of who visited you via our Festival app. Get intelligent recommendations based on your Startup or take advantage of our networking spaces including our lounges and restaurants.
