Community

Developing and supporting the events community is one of our main values at voxgig. We curate content and run events to help drive professionalism and diversity for all event professionals, from organizers to sponsors to speakers.

Our initiatives include the following:

Voxgig newsletter

A weekly themed email newsletter curated by the voxgig team and full of valuable content, insight, tips and videos to help speakers improve their skills. The newsletter also includes hand-picked tech conferences and call for papers (CFP) dates that we don’t want our readers to miss!
