Events Are Just the Beginning

In 2007, Quartz Network hosted a new kind of corporate event. Instead of chance meetings and scattershot speakers, we created a peer-led, solutions focused event that connected our executive attendees to the insights and solutions they needed to truly grow.

Today, we host dozens of executive-focused, invitation-only events annually in the US and UK. In addition, we proudly offer membership to Quartz Network, an executive-only community that connects leaders to the resources they need to thrive, including peer-led learning, curated solution finding, and more.

We Make It Easy to Find Your Edge

The Evolution of Quartz Network

2006


2006 While working in publishing, founder Toby Harris envisions a new kind of event that prioritizes peer leadership + streamlined solution finding.

2007


Quartz Network hosts its first event: SCOPE. With a focus on supply chain, manufacturing, and procurement, the success of this conference led to the creation of Quartz Network’s full slate of events.

2011


Quartz Network introduces the CIO Visions Summit, which features top IT leaders and solution providers.

2019


The Quartz Network portfolio now includes events across a broad swath of industries, including Marketing, Sales, Finance, HR and more.

2020


COVID-19 shuts down events virtually overnight, forcing Quartz Network to furlough 75% of staff. Quartz Network’s core team works tirelessly to transition to virtual events, and launches a new, on-demand solution finding software — quickly leading to a dramatic uptick in business, despite the general state of the industry.

2021


Quartz Network’s hard-won success amid adversity allows us to hire back all furloughed staff members, and then some, with the company doubling in size from 2019 to 2022. Continued success leads to exciting developments for the company, including international expansion, and acquisition by Clarion, a Blackstone company.

With founder and CEO Toby Harris firmly at the helm, Quartz Network’s core mission remains the same: deliver uniquely powerful events and meetings to connect executives with the people and resources they need to thrive.
