Genz Takeover: Kelowna



Sat, Sep 15th, 2018


10:00 am to 3:00 pm


GenZ Takeover is an event series that takes place in cities around North America. Kelowna is next!

We’re bringing the top GenZ influencers and industry leaders from all over Canada and the United States together for half-day of keynotes, panels, and break-out sessions around Marketing, Social Entrepreneurship, and Personal Branding.

Sounds great, but what is GenZ?
It’s short for Generation Z. This is the post-millennial generation with people being born between 1995-2010.

Wait… Do I have to be under 23 to attend?!
Not at all! This event is for all ages and really for anyone who is interested in business, marketing, branding, or social entrepreneurship. About 80% of the speakers are GenZ Leaders at the top of their industries internationally.

Why should I come?
The individuals speaking at this event are leaders and influencers within their industry and have worked with companies such as Walt Disney World, Nike, Hootsuite, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Pacific Hyperloop, Nissan, General Electric, and Studio71.
