When and where is it on?
June 26 & 27, 2020 at Longyearbyen, Svalbard Islands
How many years has it been going?
This is the first edition
What was the inspiration to start it?
We wanted to organize an event focused on the digital frontier at the frontier of the world. The inspiration was not only to help participants to improve their digital performance, but also to try to make the world a better place. Together, starting with what we do best: digital marketing.
It will be an exclusive event, in which only 150 managers and business owners will be able to participate. The participants will have at their disposal for two days the best speakers in the sector for a series of highly educational speeches, in an enchanting and unique place in the world.
What exciting things can people look forward to?
In addition to the company of humans, conference participants will also be able to enjoy that of foxes, reindeers and polar bears. Furthermore, Svalbard is famous also for the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, a seed bank, provides a safety net against accidental botanical loss of the traditional genetic heritage of seeds. Another peculiarity of Svalbard is the typical midnight sun, a natural phenomenon that occurs during the summer. Here the sun never sets from April 20 to August 22, so the participants will have the chance to watch this incredible phenomenon live.
What opportunities are on offer for those attending?
During the two days of training and activities, we will share with participants all the secrets of SEO, artificial intelligence for digital marketing, data governance and digital sustainability. Furthermore, participants will be able to meet people from all over the world.
Web Seeds invites Ceo, Cmo, Cco, Digital Director and Advisors, Analytics experts, Data Scientists and Sustainability Managers, who will have the opportunity to confront each other thinking outside the box and exploring the most advanced digital techniques. They will also have time to rest and get to know each other and to do additional outdoor activities.
