Our goal at WorldFestival is to accelerate world progress by connecting the globe to the newest technologies. More than ever, the entire world is a single innovation ecosystem, where one tech company’s progress can have an impact on people and companies in any nation. We connect the top emerging technologies each year to companies, people, investors, media, and communities around the world.


In addition to hosting the world innovation community, WorldFestival advocates a world vision we call “World 2.0”. The more technology progress we make, the more everything in the world becomes interconnected. Companies, customers, data, software, households, cars, cities, industries, nations all become part of one connected web. World 2.0 is the integration of the digital and real worlds, from your transportation and travel, to your company teams and projects, we are all part of one connected web.
