MORE THAN A CONFERENCE, IT’S A BREATH OF FRESH INSIGHT.

1,000 thinkers & doers, changemakers & expert practitioners will converge at The Mead Center for American Theater in Washington, D.C. on June 9, 2020. The third edition of this unique global development event, Devex World will be a full day of inspiring, interactive, collaborative sessions with one focus: turning ideas into action.

We enter a future where new models reign. No sector, no function, no professional can afford to miss the data revolution or arrive late to innovations transforming lives at scale. This more global, dynamic, competitive ecosystem is brimming with possibility. Devex World is not just about understanding this future. It’s about charting it for you, your organization, and the world.

YOU SHOULD ATTEND

IF YOU'RE A...

Global Development is a bigger tent than ever, and Devex World covers all of it. Private & public, NGO & corporation, foundation & social enterprise - we’re all in this together. Whether you design, operate, or lead solutions to the world’s toughest problems, Devex World is for you. We won’t put you in a box but if you must know, these are the kinds of professionals you’ll meet:

The voice behind the mission, you craft the narrative, build the brand, and protect the reputation.
You see opportunities for impact all around you and connection points that others have missed. Starting-up or changing from within, it doesn’t matter: it’s all about making something appear from nothing.
People aren’t widgets. You get that more than anyone. Spotting them, cultivating them, building a high-performance team worthy of the challenges your organization means to tackle - that’s what drives you.
Good intentions will only get you so far. And with the unprecedented scale of human crisis around the world, it's nowhere near far enough. You’re not interested in how it was done before; you want to find solutions that match the world we’re in today.
You love technology. Love it. Not just for what it can do but for what it is. That enthusiasm can be more powerful than the technology itself and can lead to solutions - life-saving solutions - no one else saw coming.
