The 5th anniversary will be a very special, exclusive in-person summit AND online broadcast!

Celebrating 5 years of WSAI we will be creating a ‘super summit’ by combining three of our world-leading brands together; World Summit AI, Intelligent Health (on the 12th October only), and the launch of TMinus30 – our new InspiredMinds summit on climate and the future of food and agriculture. This exclusive summit will take place at the historic Beurs van Berlage in central Amsterdam, will be limited to 1000 people, and will present a mind-blowing lineup of the very best of the last 5 years world-class speakers in one amazing show-stopping plenary stage! (to say we are excited doesn’t do it justice!!)

 

What’s WSAI and why is this year different?

“Imitation is the highest form of flattery….but there is only one World Summit AI!” Fortune magazine

WSAI is the world’s leading and internationally renowned AI summit gathering the global AI ecosystem of Enterprise, BigTech, Startups, Investors and Science, the brightest brains in AI as speakers every year in Amsterdam to tackle head-on the most burning AI issues and set the global AI agenda. We are a community of 200,000 InspiredMinds from 167 countries world-wide, we have missed you….

COVID 19 might have stopped us from meeting in person last year but we have redesigned this years summit into a show-stopping, breath-taking, pulse racing global meeting of InspiredMinds both in person at the beautiful Beurs van Berlage in the heart of Amsterdam, and online!

It would be very easy for us to sell 4000+ tickets to a physical event, but we have world leading clinicians expertise at our finger tips due to our Intelligent Health community and they have advised us –  it would simply not be the right thing to do.

We have your safety at the heart of our decision and are therefore limiting attendance to a physical summit in the heart of Amsterdam to 1000 attendees initially and we are redesigning the summit in line with clinical advice (our advisors are world leaders check out www.intelligenthealth.ai)…

More tickets may be released at a later date if safe to do so. The summit will be simultaneously streamed to our global community on our online platform.

 

What can you expect?

  • Plenary sessions: live and streamed to the platform with mind-blowing speakers and world leaders
  • Table-talks: curated, board room style meetings to find peer-to-peer solutions to your current challenges
  • Masterclass sessions: workshops with a difference, world-leading speakers giving private masterclasses to small groups at the physical summit and online
  • Workshops: nobody likes wasting time. Learn from experts in a structured, hands-on session that will keep you engaged and make the learning stick
  • Curated 121 meetings: using our AI-powered matchmaking tool – physically, there will be managed meeting points and, online, there will be camera-on meetings
  • Access the all-new ‘super summit’ streams at Intelligent Health and Tminus30 co-located InspiredMinds summits now taking place in Amsterdam for the first time!
