Digital Rubicon

When Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon River with his 13th Legion in January, 49 BCE, he effectively declared war on the Roman Senate.
Everyone with Caesar that day knew they’d emerge either victors or vanquished.

With COVID19, we’ve all crossed the Digital Rubicon.
The crisis eliminates any uncertainty about the wisdom and urgency of fundamental digital transformation.


What futures do we desire?
How do we get there?

Interactive Person to Person Sessions.
It’s not just speakers on the screen. As a delegate, you will interact directly with fellow delegates and experience formats for online interactivity.

Once In A Decade

TWIN Tech 2020 will be unlike any of our convenings of the past 11 years. We’re limiting our core delegate group to 200 to ensure true interactivity. Everyone joining will have roles to play.

With TWIN Tech 2020, we’re taking the lead in digital formats by engaging innovators from around our world. Our TWIN Tech 2020 Advisory Board members represent 30 innovation ecosystems.

We’re working together to understand how to connect year-round through the pandemic and beyond. Their minds and commitments are already activating our common purpose.

Meet Your Fellow Travelers
Foremost, TWIN is about connecting. That doesn’t happen watching speakers on a screen.

On our first day, we’ll offer a variety of ways
to connect with fellow delegates.
Embark
September 23
Explore Digital Landscapes
What is the Digital Rubicon we’ve all just crossed?
How should we navigate rapidly evolving markets?
We’ll take a particular look at digitalization within three “prosperity sectors” in which our TWINians are quite active: Energy, Food & Agriculture and Digital Health.

We’ll also launch a new format we’re calling In the Room. Delegates signup in advance for Q&A discussions limited to no more than 25 people. Real “face time”
with fellow TWINians—some of our most popular speakers from past TWIN Globals—instead of just typing questions.
