Techonomy NYC May 8-9, 2018

Program Overview

At Techonomy NYC, leaders strategize collectively about the vexing and fast-moving trends transforming business and society. Will there be promise or peril in blockchain, machine learning, 5G wireless, autonomous vehicles, the Internet of Things, and the role of looming tech giants? How can we leverage formidable trends and technologies that otherwise threaten entire industries?

We will talk about tech’s impact on New York’s key industries, including finance, media, fashion, healthcare, and technology itself.

At the same time, companies and their employees are increasingly concerned with purpose — can we make the world better? This year, our conversations will be inspired by the United Nations’ Global Goals for 2030. How can tech and business drive responsible growth?

Join our exclusive community of business and policy leaders for a wide-ranging, highly curated, and intensely moderated two-day conversation.
