With new features such as exclusive spaces for children, women and executives; six thematic lands; 30 thousand attendees already confirmed and 1,500 hours of content, Jalisco Talent Land will take place for the first time in history, from April 2 to 6 at Expo Guadalajara, the event that will replace Campus Party.
"Talent Land is made by a Mexican and Jalisco company, and we have great plans to internationalize it, but the idea is for the project in Mexico to be in Jalisco and stay in Jalisco," said Iván Millán, general manager of Talent Network, the organization that drives the innovation event.
Although the exact amount of what it will cost to do Jalisco Talent Land was not announced, it was announced that half of the resources are destined by the private initiative and the other half by government agencies. In addition, about 10,000 scholarships will be awarded to attendees by various educational institutions, municipalities and Government.
Regarding the speakers, they have already been confirmed to personalities such as Kevin Mitnick, a famous hacker who now works as a consultant after being imprisoned by the United States Government; Julio Ríos Gallego or Julio Profe, a math teacher with a YouTube channel with more than two million subscribers, among others.
The University of Guadalajara and Digital Creative City are allies in this event.
