An event unlike any other

Our annual flagship event – the TFF Summit – is a melting pot of big, bold ideas from industry leaders, next-generation innovators, investors and more. 

Our team has been working for the past year to develop an event experience that is beyond the ordinary, that celebrates human ingenuity, that is oozing with optimism and that delivers real impact.
