A business conference is like a freshly-bloomed flower attracting bees towards it! It is a convergence of people with like-minded interests, and similar goals into one place, where there is a mutual exchange of information, ideas and business strategies, networking among entrepreneurs and companies, all of which would otherwise be difficult to achieve individually. A business conference is also a ground for investors and capitalists to find good investment opportunities. Entrepreneurs, on the other hand, can present their business ideas, plans and forecasts in order to attract suitable investment partners.
Amplify Festival is one such platform that has been created to explore business trends, leadership, trending technologies and innovation. Attendees benefit via interactive events arranged for them such as keynote presentations and workshops with business leaders, academics and experts. Through these, they can update themselves with edge-thinking business strategies preparing them for the future of business.
