200+ Speakers

Yes you read that right. We aim to have over 200 speakers at the summit. How? Well, every delegate who attends the summit is a speaker as he/she will be able to answer the questions put forward by the audience. He/she will be able to debate and let the audience know their perspective on which marketing technique worked for them and what did they do to solve a marketing puzzle in their organisation. There are no panel discussions. Only Q&As and Debates moderated by 1 or multiple subject matter experts who will also add their point of view. It's a brand new concept loved by the delegates of past Intrigue Summits. We are telling you, this is not an ordinary summit. Be prepared to get intrigued!
