Nearly 20,000 people are converging in New Orleans this week for Collision, the fastest growing tech conference in the country.
Through the Collision app, attendees can connect and chat with other attendees, media, speakers and investors. Users can also build personalized schedules by favoriting events throughout the conference.
Yesterday we shared top trends organizers gathered through the Collision app, including most favorited startups, speakers, and sessions. Trends for the today range from interest in sessions around design and creativity to actress and activist Sophia Bush as one of the most viewed speakers.
Some of the stages and tracks for Collision 2017 are AutoTech + TalkRobot, Binate.io, FullSTK, MusicNotes, PandaConf + creatiff, Planet:Tech, SaaS Monster, Startup University, and Center Stage that features several big names in tech and entrepreneurship such as Chris Sacca, Wyclef Jean, and Alexis Ohanian.
On the PITCH Stage, entrepreneurs from around the world pitch in groups of six for a chance to make it to the semi-final round in the afternoon. The full schedule is available at collisionconf.com.
Collision doesn’t end each day when the sessions wrap up. Each night there is a Night Summit at different locations around the city. Tonight attendees will be gathered on Decatur Street in the French Quarter for a party with conference organizers and Lucid.
