For us, June doesn’t simply bring the much-anticipated beginning of summer. It also brings Europe’s leading (and most intimate) tech event. Yes, we’re talking about TNW Conference 2024 — and you’re all invited! We really want to see you there so use the code TNWXMEDIA to get 30% off all passes.
Whether you’re already a loyal fan or you want to experience the magic for the first time, you can expect nothing less than the very heart of tech.
As usual we’re bringing together the entire ecosystem: from startups and investors, to C-level executives, industry leaders, and policymakers.
With the mission to uncover what the future of tech looks like, we’re crafting up two days full of inspirational talks, networking, learning opportunities, and the festival vibes our conference is known for. Who says you can’t do business while enjoying every minute of it?
RenAIssance: The AI-Powered Rebirth
TNT: Igniting Tomorrow’s Techscape
Sustainable Futures: People, Planet, Product
Finance Disrupted: Shaking the Foundations of Finance
Pixels & Profit: Crafting Pixels, Maximising Profits
Innovate: Sink or Swim?
Venture: Show me the Money
To delve deep into these themes and make sure you get the most out of our TNW stages, we’ve assembled the first-ever TNW Advisory Board — made up of founders, investors, and corporates. These 11 industry leaders will help us shape our conference content with their unique background and their insights on what’s happening in tech in 2024.
