Volcano Innovation Summit is a global initiative, which acts as a platform to exchange visions and experiences. Driven by the mission to incorporate Latin America to the global network of innovation, science and culture by connecting business, entrepreneurs, creative leaders and investors for crossover conversation and inspiration. Taking advantage of Guatemala's location as a bridge between North, Central and South America, we continue pushing the boundaries for the region from Antigua Guatemala.

The event will bring together world leaders from all fields; digital, corporate, financial, telecom, cyber, energy, mobile, sustainability and more. Volcano Innovation Summit will include co-located events and sessions, in addition to cultural and social events. Become part of the conversation and help create the most audacious tech innovation summit in the Latin American region. The 2023 edition will take place on September 30th, October 1-2 in Antigua Guatemala.

We would love to have your light!
