A Sky Full Of Stars
Project Voice Worldwide kicks off TODAY at 10 AM Eastern; Project Voice Award Winners Announced
At the very end of Project Voice 100, an executive-level in-person conference taking place this Tuesday and Wednesday, we took a picture.
It would be hard to describe to you how energizing, how re-animating, how restorative this two-day experience was.
Business was done, friendships and relationships were re-kindled, and the vibe was akin to a family reunion.
In-person events aren’t going to return anytime soon as they were. The lessons we learned here will directly influence how we execute more in-person events later this year, which will include The Voice of Healthcare Summit, Digital Book World, and Project Voice X.
Project Voice Worldwide is the virtual component of the #1 event for voice technology & conversational AI in America: Project Voice.
Project Voice Worldwide is FREE to register and attend, and kicks off TODAY at 10 AM Eastern.
Registration gets you audio and video files of both days of conference proceedings, along with access to attend in real-time as desired.
Keynotes include Nikki McLay of iVow.AI, Nolan Bushnell, and Mark Cuban, while the entire conference itself showcases a wide variety of leaders, trailblazers, and pioneers in this emergent area of technology.

This will be a significant gathering and a big step back toward more traditional trade shows, where cross-pollination between industry verticals and various types of companies yields tremendous value.
The location of the conference provides the opportunity for family or friends to tag along for a vacation, one that you may need after months of face-time over the summer as offices open back up.
Exhibit hall space & sponsorships are available. If you’re interested in being part, please let us know.
Also please note that, for attendees, Early Bird Registration lasts until May 1.
