Dallas Innovator Perk: 10 Free Tickets to Digital Fight Club 2018

Be the first to grab them before they're gone, and we'll see you at the fights on Aug. 1.

Knock your blockchain off: In "Fight No. 4," it's Big Company vs. Nimble Startup, says Digital Dallas Founder Michael Pratt. Jaime Chambron of NTT Data will go up against Mark Hopkins of Roger Wilco.

Mayhem, indeed. Ten of the sharpest wits in Dallas will spar in 5 “fights” on the hotbed of undecided topics in digital technology today. 

This year’s lineup has some real heavy hitters (pun intended), says Digital Dallas Founder Michael Pratt. The Dallas Morning News called last year’s event “a lively, if nerdy, debate.”  As always, the lineup of referees (including Andrew Hopkins, managing director of Accenture, and Jennifer Saenz, CMO of Frito-Lay) will get to ask piercing questions and have a weighted vote when it comes to picking the winner.

And, audience members will weigh in using their collective voices to render judgment. To sweeten the deal, WeWork will be providing Swag Bags “worthy of the Oscars” (or so they tell me), says Pratt. We hear that Common Desk will have its fancy airstream lounge on hand to hang out in in front of the Granada, too.
