WORLDZ 2017 is bringing together the titans of culture.
You’re not going to want to miss out on whose set to speak!
Taking place in Los Angeles, California from July 31 – August 1, WORLDZ 2017 will bring together the who’s who from top global brands, startups and creators to lead a month of seminars, concerts, master classes, and more. Officially dubbed a cultural marketing conference, WORLDZ is more like a melting pot of movers and industry shakers.
Proving that point, they just announced that 7x Grammy Award-winning Artist will.i.am will receive Titan Awards in recognition of his ongoing philanthropic endeavors, as well as his dedication to inspiring audiences through his unique creative abilities.
Check out the slick teaser trailer below.
“Part of our mission at WORLDZ is to unite the top leaders… to maximize the learnings and takeaways our community can use to grow both personally and professionally,” says Roman Tsunder, CEO and Co-Founder of PTTOW! and WORLDZ.
“We’re excited that cultural icons like Tony Hawk and will.i.am will be joining us to not only be recognized for their business and philanthropic work, but also provide personal insights on how their failures and successes have brought them to where they are now.”
will.i.iam will join previous 2017 Titans Kelly Slater and Shaun White
