Sesame Summit 2020 Postponed

Dear Sesamers,


As many of you are aware, we have been bringing our community together since 2016, with founders, investors, event organizers and innovation professionals networking and learning from each other. We did this in London, Venice, Valencia, with Paris next in line. 

Unfortunately, given global concerns around COVID-19, we have decided to reschedule Sesame Summit 2020, initially planned for April 24th at Station F in Paris, to 2021.


We will make an official statement on Tuesday, March 10th and plan to communicate on next year’s dates very soon.


Sesame Summit is where international Tech events unite and bridges between ecosystems from all over the world are built. Yet conference organizers are currently facing tough challenges to keep their business afloat and it felt wrong to ask them to travel to Paris for the Summit. Of course, it goes without saying that we are above all concerned about the health and well-being of our community, their teams and families.

While Sesame Summit 2020 is officially postponed, we’ve decided to maintain the activities and workshops taking place in private venues, and are currently working on integrating an online solution for those not able to attend. In particular, the Kickoff of our annual startup program and some of the workshops planned will happen on April 23-24th, 2020 in Paris – free of charge.

We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and will take additional measures if public health organizations enforce policies that would involve the cancellation of all business meetings.


Ticket holders can get a full refund or keep their ticket for the new dates of 2021. 


Please contact us if you need further information.


Thank you for your understanding, stay safe and keep Sesaming,

Ben & Team Sesame
