I’m still buzzing from my incredible experience at WITDreamin’22 in Jaipur. As someone passionate about tech, especially the emerging fields of NFTs and Web3, this event was a dream come true. Not only did I get to present a session on these fascinating topics, but I also had the honour of sponsoring the pre-event dinner on behalf of my company concret.io.
The Pre-Event Dinner: A Feast for the Mind and Body
Before diving into the conference, I met key speakers and delegates from Salesforce at the pre-event dinner. The atmosphere was electric, filled with the slight chill of winter and the buzz of insightful conversations. It was a casual setting, but the discussions were anything but. Conversations ranged from Salesforce, Web3, and WIT, and I couldn’t have asked for a better kick-off to the event.
The Event: A Whirlwind of Innovation
The morning of WITDreamin was a whirlwind of activity. The venue was buzzing with tech enthusiasts, industry leaders, and curious minds, all eager to dive into the day’s sessions. It was time for my session after grabbing a cup of chai and some quick networking.
My Session: Navigating the World of NFTs and Web3
The room was packed, and the energy was palpable as I took the stage to talk about NFTs and Web3. I started by demystifying NFTs—Non-Fungible Tokens—for those new to the concept. We explored how NFTs revolutionise everything from art and beyond.

Now, how could I possibly wrap up without mentioning the epic after-party? If the conference was the main course, the after-party was the dessert you didn’t know you needed but couldn’t resist.
The DJ was on fire, spinning tracks with Trailblazers hitting the dance floor. It was a beautiful sight to see people who had been discussing enterprise architecture all day let loose and show off their dance moves.
But it wasn’t just about the music and dancing. The after-party also served as an informal networking space. I had some of the most insightful conversations of the entire event while sharing a drink with fellow attendees.
- Community Matters: What stood out for me was the sense of community. WITDreamin wasn’t just about learning but connecting, sharing, and growing together. The event provided a platform for women in tech to shine and welcomed allies and advocates from all walks of life. The diversity of thought and experience was enriching.
- Continuous Learning: The tech world is ever-evolving, and events like this are a reminder that we should never stop learning. Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned pro, there’s always something new to discover.
- Empowerment: The focus on women in tech was empowering. It’s crucial to create spaces where underrepresented voices can be heard, and WITDreamin did just that.
