2023 EMEA Summit


6.21.2023 at 8:00AM - 6.23.2023 at 5:00PM

Thrive in a global economy.

June 21-23rd, for the reintroduction of our live and in-person Summit focusing on Europe, Africa, and the Middle East Region, we plan to return to Paris. Drawing from the expert perspectives of community members across Europe, African, and The Middle East, we plan to gain uniquely valuable insights around how innovations like AI, robotics and smart buildings are continuously changing the way we work, how venture funds are playing a large part in the sector in that region of the world and beyond, and much more. With information and technology increasingly connecting the world, every company, regardless of size and location, must understand the impact, opportunities, and challenges of thinking globally.
