BFUTR Global Tech Summit
October 19, 2022
BFUTR Global Tech Summit, supported by founding Title partner TD Bank, will be accessible through a hybrid format from October 19, 2022, until October 21, 2022. The first two days of the conference will offer participants the option to engage in a select number of remote and in-person events, while the third day’s programming components will only be accessible at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.
The summit, the most prominent Black tech conference globally, is known for its innovative tech talks, dynamic networking opportunities, career development seminars and epic after-parties that include some of the music industry’s most talented artists.
Participants attending the 2022 hybrid summit experience can purchase a VIP pass ($299) to access the venue, while guests accessing the event remotely can secure a General pass ($0) free of charge. TD Bank being the founding Title partner, we are expecting 20,000+ attendees composed of Black professionals and allies, as well as 60+ influential corporate tech partner such as LinkedIn, Salesforces, BMO, RBC and Intuit, this summit offers opportunities to celebrate accomplishments and reconnect with old friends within the Black tech community while also enjoying conference perks and programming elements like:
- Tech talks led by 100+ industry leaders and change-makers sharing the sector’s latest technical advances along with keynote touchpoints delivered by public figures like Comedian and host of the Emmy-Award Winning “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah;
- An after-party with performances by American rapper and six-time Grammy-nominated artist Rick Ross;
- One-on-one networking lounges, product demos, VIP social outings around the city of Toronto, and an array of meet and greets at some of the corporate offices of Big tech industry partners – allowing prospective job candidates to obtain a personalized experience of their company culture;
- And most importantly, a series of dedicated hiring and learning sessions designed to strengthen and build scalable talent recruitment pipelines and sponsorship opportunities with Black professionals in attendance.
Aside from the return of the summit’s in-person activities, which were temporarily paused for the last two years due to pandemic restrictions, what’s especially notable about this Black-led tech conference is that its core function is to provide pathways for hiring talent and sponsorship of Black professionals in an industry that traditionally excludes them as consumers and viable talent sources.
