Phorum 2020 Evolves into Virtual Series

Premier one-day enterprise technology conference adds Summer Series culminating with Keynote Series this Fall

Philadelphia, June 18, 2020 – Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) announced today the enhancement of its enterprise technology conference, Phorum. The Phorum Summer Series debuts on June 24 and will feature monthly virtual events and On Demand content on the new Phorum desktop and mobile app. Phorum will culminate in October with the Phorum Keynote Series, featuring globally recognized expert, best-selling author and thought leader, Tony Saldanha.

Hosted by PACT and presented by Fairmount Partners and Anexinet, Phorum 2020: Becoming a Digital Disruptor In a Changing World will explore three key themes: Connectivity, Privacy and Ethical Data. Both the Summer Series and Keynote Series will feature a variety of lightning talks, panel discussions, keynote addresses and pitches from the Demo Pit finalists.

The Demo Pit finalists will deliver a two-minute pitch about their companies during the Phorum Summer Series using pre-recorded videos for registrants to view. During the Phorum Keynote Series, the finalists will have five minutes to pitch their companies ‘live’ to a panel of judges. The judges vote combined with the registrants’ vote will determine this year’s winner.

“We made an early decision to postpone Phorum 2020 for the safety of all participants due to the outbreak of COVID-19,” said Dean Miller, President and CEO of PACT. “Since that decision has been made, we have held many meetings and discussions with technology leaders to help us transform Phorum into what we’re presenting this summer and fall. Not only are we able to deliver all the originally scheduled speakers, but with the addition of the Summer Series, we can deliver more educational content and offer more opportunities for interactivity and networking among the registrants. We are thrilled with the Phorum programming we have to offer and are eagerly awaiting the kickoff.”

Upon registering for Phorum 2020, attendees will receive a link to download the new Phorum desktop and mobile app. Not only will the app house all the Phorum content, but it will also enable guests to network with each other, visit with sponsors, vote for the Demo Pit winner and more.
