Think Big Festival

Digital • Worldwide • October 22 - 24, 2020

WHAT IS IT?

EXPERTS • TECH • PARTIES

We are throwing a three day party both online and in-person!

For the last 6 years, we have hosted the worlds greatest tech festival with the greatest minds from around the world, concerts, a giant tech street fair, and tons of tech parties. We were so excited for our 7th year and guess what? COVID.

So this year we are modifying Think Big Festival and taking it around the world!

3 days. 3 states. Small, in-person events, and we are streaming the entire thing around the globe! That’s right, the IC Team will be hitting the road to host from Utica, NY, Brooksville, FL, and Coeur d’Alene, ID!

We’ll still have the same great speakers you have come to expect, but they will just be beaming their brilliance directly into your home!

Check out the schedule and get your tickets today. Heck we even kept the price low so there’s no excuse for not taking advantage of these 3 days of innovation!
