A Transformative Platform for Genuine Connection

Future Proof already set the industry event bar HIGH last year. But their introduction of Breakthru meetings takes the cake this year. EVERY industry event needs this!!!

Diana C.

These Breakthru networking sessions at Future Proof are a game changer. Amazing idea. Probably the most effective networking at any financial conference.

Ray H.

The technology that ⁦Future Proof⁩ built to book & manage thousands of individual meetings over three days was working flawlessly.

Craig I.

I struggle to fully articulate how amazing the experience was at Future Proof. Getting a chance to have dedicated 15-minute meetings on the Breakthru platform was a game-changer.

Josh S.

The connections were richer. They were also incredibly well-executed, with the Breakthru format allowing for an insane number of useful business connections in an insanely efficient amount of time.

Future Proof exceeded my expectations. I don’t think I’ve ever posted that about a conference I attended. Well done. The double opt-in meetings were brilliant.

The Breakthru Hosted Program is a specialized part of Future Proof Festival that includes Breakthru Hosted Meetings, Experiences, and Talks. It’s designed to connect Financial Advisors and Wealth Management Executives with key players in the industry.

When you register to attend Future Proof, you will be asked if you want to get the most out of the event by participating in Breakthru. Simply check the box, and you will be enrolled in the event!

These are 15-minute, double opt-in meetings where you can meet with everyone you want to meet at Future Proof!

Breakthru Experiences are unique activities. They offer a less formal setting for networking and are exclusive to the Breakthru Program attendees.

Breakthru Talks are peer group roundtable discussions on key industry topics. Unlike general sessions, these are smaller, focused groups of 5-8 peers, making for in-depth conversations.

You will receive email updates and calendar holds for the Breakthru activities you’ve opted into. Make sure to accept these to finalize your participation.

Yes, you can. You’ll have the opportunity to select which Breakthru Talks and Experiences interest you the most. However, Meetings are double opt-in, ensuring mutual interest.

Qualified attendees may be eligible for up to $750 in travel and hotel reimbursement. This is part of the exclusive benefits of being in the Breakthru Hosted Program at Future Proof Festival.

Unlike casual networking, these are pre-scheduled, 15-minute, focused meetings. Both parties have to “swipe right,” meaning there’s a mutual interest in meeting, which increases the chances of a beneficial interaction.

If you can’t attend a scheduled activity, it’s crucial to notify the Future Proof Retreat team immediately. Failure to participate in scheduled activities may affect your eligibility for reimbursements and future participation.

You’ll receive timely updates and reminders via email and text. Make sure to check your spam folder and keep an eye on communications from our registration team.

You’ll select your preferred Talks and Experiences during a designated period before the Future Proof Festival. These are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, so act quickly to secure your spots.

Each Breakthru activity has its own deadline for profile completion. Typically, you’ll have a window of about a week for each. All deadlines will be communicated well in advance.
