National Geographic Storytellers Summit​

e2k has produced summits and events for National Geographic in Washington, D.C., London, Hong Kong and Mexico City, including Explorers Festival and the Nat Geo Awards. These exciting homecomings typically bring the global explorer community together at ‘basecamp’ to share their research and stories from the stage.

In January 2021, the 5-day Virtual Storytellers Summit welcomed more than 4,000 attendees and featured 50+ National Geographic photographers, videographers, journalists and mapmakers. e2k recreated a 3D virtual set of the iconic Grosvenor Auditorium, where the in-person summit usually takes place. A robust, custom-branded portal helped to organize the 45 summit events, including small campfire gatherings, photography portfolio reviews, town halls and executive briefings, exclusive film screenings from the Nat Geo Channel, an Explorer Trivia gameshow, and international watch parties in Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. All sessions featured English captions and American Sign Language interpretation. The event was jointly-executed from e2k Studios in Mountain View, CA and e2k International in London and Dubai.
