about registration

{dive} is all about joining 99 other friendly people on an innovative, 18-hour journey. We believe attendance by 100 people would be optimal to deliver an unforgettable and inspiring event with high-value networking. Our passes don’t come in Silver, Gold, Platinum, or other fancy metals. Every {dive} guest is a VIP and deserves the best: the Full Immersion Pass. We believe attracting an international crowd should be a priority to get a varied, unpredictable audience. So, because the farther you come from, the more the trip will cost you, your pass comes with a travel discount. This is our special {dive} formula.

The Full immersion Pass includes :
- Every session, workshop, discussion, panel, and interview on the program
- Access to the {dive} networking app
- Exclusive access to all event documents and videos for one year
- A {dive}'s book with the best quotes and moments of the show, one month after
- A special culinary track (food and beverage), designed by Centre Culinaire Contemporain, from breakfast to the closing dinner
- An evening party featuring a rich and diverse line up of musicians and DJs
- And more surprises to come…
