Every aspect of how we live and work is being transformed by technology advances. The social and economic evolution within our cities showcases the direct impact these tech-driven changes have on the industries. Whether it is advances in transportation, education, healthcare or government, technology is enabling new tools to address the challenges and opportunities that will drive the business and social structures of our interconnected, urbanized future. The impact of tech on the American economy, its cities and how tech is transforming the urban ecosystem will shape the agenda for the fourth annual one-day Techonomy Detroit conference.
This upcoming September, the Techonomy Detroit conference will integrate a number of different formats, allowing for interactive, engaging dialogue and discussion throughout. This conference focuses on what technology does best, allows its attendees to receive information in the format that best suits their needs and the topic at hand. The conference will include main-stage whole group sessions focused on the strategic implications of big, overarching challenges and opportunities, interactive Techonomy Labs designed to run longer and dive deeper into some of the more pressing topics of the day, one-on-one interviews, and short presentations. The main focus of the conference is to see what cities mean today and the evolving role they’ll have tomorrow for citizens, businesses and institutions, for work, play and learning, for jobs, culture and community. As well new this year to Techonomy Detroit is the first Autodesk Design Night hosted outside of San Francisco.
