EAGx organizers from across the world are uniting to deliver a programme of events spanning all time zones, bringing together the global EA community for a weekend of connection and reflection.
The main focus of the event will be one-on-one meetings between attendees, but there will also be a range of live and pre-recorded content including talks, live Q&As, speed meetings, and group discussions. In the week following the event, we encourage attendees to suggest and organize their own content which we will publicise on the official schedule.
We hope to attract a large audience of first-time and returning attendees from across the world. The conference will be suitable for anyone with at least some involvement with EA (having read a few articles or a book for example). If you’re a complete newcomer, then we recommend engaging with some introductory EA content first.
Applications will close at 11.59 pm GMT on Thursday, 11 June.
We are looking forward to an inspiring conference with you!
Your EAGx core team (Sebastian, Luise, Cristina & Manuel)
Putting on an event like this requires a lot of time and other resources. We’re putting in a lot of effort to make it a great experience — but we don’t want cost to be a barrier for anyone.
As a result, we’re running EAGxVirtual on a 'pay what you want' basis. Our suggested price is $40, with a minimum contribution of $5. If everyone who registers pays $40, we estimate we’ll cover our costs.
As in past years, we also have a 'benefactor' option that lets you pay for your own ticket and also support another attendee; this will be a suggested $80 contribution.
