Celosphere 2021: Megan Rapinoe, Keith Block, and the First Wave of Speakers and Sessions Announced!

3 days, more than 100 inspiring, hands-on sessions, hosted live from 2 continents for more than 15,000 attendees. That’s what you can expect from Celosphere 2021! But why stop there?

We want you to walk away from Celosphere feeling energized, informed, engaged, and full of new ideas. That’s a tall order for a virtual event, but we’re up for the challenge. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be counting down to the big show by sharing new speakers every week, including our incredible lineup of superstar Special Guest Speakers and CEO Speakers.

Today, we’re thrilled to unveil our first two headliners… and you won’t be disappointed.

We also wanted to let you know that the full agenda is now available at You can start exploring sessions there — stay tuned for frequent updates.

And now (drumroll please) allow us to introduce…


See Megan in the Keynote and hear her thoughts about driving change in sports, in business, and in the world — and how it’s all connected.


Sometimes you have to break old things to make new things happen. Join Keith in our CEO Fireside Chat and hear why he believes we’re facing another big break from old world tech to new world intelligent execution — at the same scale as on-prem to cloud.

As always, we’ve got 3 days of nonstop programming in store for you, but this year, it’s hosted live on US and European primetime hours! Our agenda includes 100+ sessions covering everything from product deep-dives to real-life use cases and best practices from customers who’ve unlocked millions in their businesses.

This year’s tracks are:

Keynotes: Join Celonis leaders and special guests for our visionary Opening Keynote on Day 1 and our Product & Platform Keynote on Day 2, and get a front-row seat for some incredible new product launches and announcements. The Keynotes will feature groundbreaking conversations with Special Guest Speakers like Megan Rapinoe, and fireside chats with CEO Speakers like Keith Block.

Customer Stories: Celonis users from around the globe will share the success they’ve achieved in departments like Finance, IT, Supply Chain, and Procurement, and industries like manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, and consumer goods. See how they’re accelerating top-level digital initiatives like customer experience, automation, system migrations, and sustainability with the EMS.

  3. Product Showcase: Led by the team behind the EMS, these sessions will include overviews of the capabilities of the EMS platform and Execution Apps — plus live demos and roadmaps. Be the first to see our brand new execution apps, combining the best of Process Mining, AI, and intelligent automation.
