This year the Techonomy conference gets even better with our move to the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay, California, November 9-11. At Techonomy we obsess about how technology transforms and accelerates business and social and economic progress. But rather than just talk about how we may turn into cyborgs by 2020 (OK maybe not quite—but the coming changes could be almost as shocking) we aim to help attendees and even speakers understand what it means for them and their organizations. Techonomy is about the "so what" of innovation and exponential change. Our multi-disciplinary, interactive program is where leaders of tech meet and brainstorm with peers from business, government, science, and the arts, at the highest level.
Speakers at previous conferences have included Bill Gates (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), Eric Schmidt (Google), Padmasree Warrior (Cisco), Marc Benioff (salesforce.com), Mark Bertolini (Aetna), Marissa Mayer (Yahoo!), Jack Dorsey (Twitter), Steve Case (Revolution LLC), John Markoff (The New York Times), Roger McNamee (Elevation Partners), Sean Parker (Founders Fund), Neelie Kroes (European Commission), Susan Desmond-Hellmann (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), Matthew Bishop (The Economist), Deborah Hopkins (Citi), Jeffrey Katzenberg (DreamWorks Animation SKG), Eri Gentry (Institute for the Future), Steve Forbes (Forbes Media), Ina Fried (Re/code), Saskia Sassen (Columbia University) and Jeff Weiner (LinkedIn).
Our conversations range from behavior to business, from culture to cloning, and from art to infrastructure. All are transformed by accelerating tech-driven innovation. Techonomy's ultimate goal is to help us more rapidly create a fairer, friendlier, happier, inclusive, and more productive world.
