The Economist’s Innovation Summit

March 7 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm

Every business in every industry must think and act like a technology company to compete in today’s global economy.

Exponential technologies–including artificial intelligence, blockchain and quantum computing–coupled with political uncertainty, make leading a business today no easy feat and the stakes are high. How can companies ensure that they emerge with long-term strategies to harness technology for positive and profitable growth?

The 2019 Innovation Summit will provide playbook on the technologies you need to stay competitive and at the forefront of industry. Join us to discuss the answers to questions such as:

Can companies ensure that they have long-term strategies despite the uncertainty, and can technology set them up for a positive and profitable growth?
Which technologies are going to make the most impact to corporations’ bottom lines the soonest?
Is the fear that the tech titans will use their power to protect and extend their own dominance to the detriment of consumers justified?
How can policymakers restrain the giants without unduly stifling innovation? And what ought to be the role of the governments in curbing tech monopolies and propelling competition?
The debates and discussions at the summit will offer a robust geopolitical context while dissecting and analysing the trends that promise to follow Moore’s Law patterns of exponential growth.
