“This year’s SVG Summit will be the most important one ever! As an industry, we need to connect now more than ever.”
— Mike Davies, SVG Chairman

The heart and soul of every SVG SUMMIT are the people who attend. Once a year over 1500 of us get together to hangout, schmooze, learn, and share. The COVID-19 crisis has made this more difficult, but our industry’s sense of community has never been stronger. We are fighting through this together. And we need to connect now more than ever before!

How can a virtual SVG SUMMIT still bring members and sponsors together?

If we all focus on our industry, our friends and our partners.

If we all connect.

Introducing SVG SUMMIT:CONNECT, our first-ever event that takes advantage of technology platforms to give you a chance to catch up with old friends, make some new ones, and better understand workflows and technologies that can help your business adapt to today’s challenges.

Scheduled for Dec. 14-16, with SVG Initiative meetings on the 17th, this year’s SVG SUMMIT:CONNECT is being programmed so you can all connect. It will feature town-hall meetings, keynote conversations, roundtable discussions, and technology tours. It may be virtual but it still is real, giving everyone a chance to reflect on an historic year, and end it together on a high note.

In addition to general sessions covering the industry’s most pressing issues, this year’s SVG SUMMIT:CONNECT event highlights include:

  • Roundtable Sessions: Everyone is a speaker at these SVG committee and community sessions that will emphasize discussion, debate, and discovery.
  • SVG CONNECT: This year registrants for the SVG Summit will be able to send messages to other attendees prior to, during, and even after the show! Our communication system will allow for email communication without the need to share personal contact details.
  • Meet for the Fund: SVG will donate $100 to the SVG Fund in the name of every member who schedules at least three virtual meetings with our Event Sponsors. When an end user selects a sponsor to meet with, the sponsor will reach out to schedule a virtual meeting at a convenient time. This is a great way to make new friends, learn about new technologies, or catch up with old friends and “do good” at the same time!
  • Tech Tours: SVG VIPs will curate a series of topical 30-minute “tours” that will highlight the hottest technology introductions from our Event Sponsors.
