CogX Festival 2023

Our seventh Festival aims to be our biggest AND most inclusive and forward-thinking gathering of leaders, CEOs, entrepreneurs, policy makers, artists, academics and activists to date.
Our goal

To deliver Inclusivity at Scale - Through an expanded Partnerships Programme we will welcome 90,000 visitors over 3 days to hear from over 1,000+ incredible speakers - across stages, including True Industry Transformation, to a dedicated 1,500 seater for Deeptech (not for the faint hearted). 

While at the same time, a new curated Executive programme will provide full event access as well as an exclusive experience in a rich schedule of expertly curated themed side events hosted by both our partners, our community and of course our own editorial team.

Our focus

To help you answer the big question, ‘How do we get the next 10 years right?’. But not just with conversations but with concrete action.

For that reason, CogX 2023 Festival delivers across 5 pillars that make it unique:

Festival App

The CogX Festival app will search “recommended for you” or our concierge will help make valuable connections and book 1:1 meetings.

The CogX Expo & Awards

Celebrate the Best Innovation in one place. CogX Expo showcases 1,000 Startups together with scale ups and established enterprises. 


The Expo floor features booths, Pavilions and Expo villages, giving you the opportunity to engage with new connections and have the most constructive conversations. 


CogX’s Startup Programme is the most affordable way to access all the stages, meet customers, investors, the press and fellow founders.

CogX is committed to Action at Scale.

We encourage everyone to seize the opportunity for public engagement and action and make it count. To make that happen we’ve set up idea hubs where anyone can take their thoughts on event content, innovation ideas, public policy, and or vote on other people’s ideas throughout the 3 days of CogX Festival 2023. We call it our “Do Tank”.

We will also post session follow ons with speakers and moderators to invite the audience to contribute to a Policy/Do Tank wall.

Helping you build meaningful relationships and grow revenues

One of the fundamental objectives of CogX. The CogX Festival app uses the latest in machine learning to recommend connections, as well as classic search by name, company and topic.


We avoid spam by filtering for messages from connections you have accepted - making the inbox invaluable, and we provide a huge range of exciting networking and meeting locations depending on your pass type; including 100 restaurants and cafes, the Investor Lounge, the Leaders Lounge or the Gold Lounge - all with bookable tables for 1:1 meetings.
