LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--StageLight Group, a strategic capital and advisory firm, today announced the launch of SCALE MOVEMENT (MVMT), the world’s premier thought leadership forum where capital, innovation and purpose collide. Presented in collaboration with Zappos.com, a leading ecommerce and customer service company based in Las Vegas, SCALE marks a major homecoming for the founders of StageLight Group who were the creator and executive producers of an award-winning thought leadership conference dubbed “the Davos of the desert” by Fortune Magazine.
SCALE’s first annual flagship event will take place October 6th – 9th at the Wynn Las Vegas. It will include more than 2,200 of the world’s most influential minds in finance, technology, healthcare, government, retail, entertainment and philanthropy for four days of curated content and immersive experiences. The program has been designed to inspire learning and innovation; catalyze growth and opportunity; facilitate news-making and market-moving insights; and strengthen networks and build relationships.
“With the launch of SCALE, we are building an integrated community of collaboration, empowerment and co-learning – a community of the world’s most impactful business builders, entrepreneurs and investors who are transforming the ideas of today into the innovations of tomorrow,” said Victor Oviedo, co-founder & CEO of SCALE. “Attendees will leverage this multidisciplinary platform – and one another – to exponentially grow their businesses, elevate their brands, promote their causes, expand their network, raise capital, and access deal-flow.”
“Over the course of four days, attendees will hear from nearly 200 speakers – seasoned CEOs, industry luminaries, disruptive innovators, trailblazing visionaries and prominent thought leaders – who are redefining business as usual, shaping the global conversation, and pioneering the age of innovation within the context of unprecedented technological advancement,” said Kelly O’Connor, co-founder & chief creative officer of SCALE. “This original editorial program will foster forward-looking talks, spirited debates, and solution-orientated discussions on the innovations shaping our future, while identifying meaningful solutions to address the world’s most critical needs and issues.”
The partnership between StageLight and Zappos is centered on their shared commitment to create unique, impactful and memorable experiences that facilitate serendipitous interactions, foster synergistic relationships, promote the cross-pollination of ideas, and connect the future of industry. The program will include thought-provoking content, live performances, investor roundtables, culinary festivals, wellness workshops, pitch showcases, and much more – including once-in-a-lifetime local excursions to Las Vegas landmarks, DTP (formerly Downtown Project) and the Zappos headquarters.
“Las Vegas has evolved over time to become a place of inspiration, entrepreneurial energy, creativity, innovation, upward mobility, and discovery. We are excited that Zappos and DTP will be partnering with StageLight to power SCALE in our hometown of Las Vegas," said Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com and founder of DTP.
Tyler Williams, Head of Zappos Brand Aura said, “We’ve experienced firsthand the ability of Victor & Kelly’s team to build powerful communities of collaboration. This is powered by their well curated attendee base, engaging editorial programming, and unique networking events. We are most excited to join forces to make these experiences even more magical by bringing our expertise in building company culture that’s rooted in core values, along with our recent experiments in organizational science. All things we are very passionate about.”
