Limassol’s Reflect Festival featuring Randi Zuckerberg

Randi Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media will be among the speakers at Reflect Festival on the future taking place in Limassol this May for the third time.

Zuckerberg was formerly Director of market development and spokesperson for Facebook and is the sister of its co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Reflect Festival started in 2018 and is a 2-day celebration of the future on Limassol’s beachfront, a location that organisers say is a link between Europe and the Middle East.

“With a focus on diversity and inclusion, Reflect gathers more than 3,000 students, entrepreneurs, businessmen, academics, investors and enthusiasts, eager to build their business and personally grow, meet, chat, listen, learn and celebrate,” organisers said on social media.

The festival focuses on the most exciting aspects of the future in a number of areas including technology, society, business and entrepreneurship, sustainability, politics, money, health, and relationships.

Last year, attendees had a chance to meet Sophia, the first robot citizen developed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics and has become an internet sensation since her activation on February 14, 2016.

Reflect Festival is accessible to the public by the purchase of a ticket from the event’s website.
