Conference will start in

Voxxed Days Zurich Online 2021


Tuesday, June 15th, 2021.

Voxxed Days Zürich 2021 will run as an online event while we prepare to return as an in-person conference in 2022.  

Anybody holding a ticket for VDZ22 will receive a free ticket for the online event in 2021. 

We’ve had a lot of messages and support from developers asking us to organise a physical event and we think this is an important network day for all of us. We will be ready to start again as soon as it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, we want the community to have the chance to meet online and hear from some of the best speakers around. The schedule, speakers and sessions for Voxxed Days Zurich Online 2021 will be announced very soon.

The 4th edition of Voxxed Days Zürich in 2019 attracted 517 attendees who came together to meet and listen to fantastic content. Get a feel for it and watch the VDZ19 videos on YouTube.

Special thanks goes to our amazing Program Committee and speakers for this success. You can see feedback and comments on Twitter and get updates on Voxxed Days Zürich 2021 by following us @VoxxedZurich.
