Here’s how to convince your boss you should go to TNW Conference 2017

Tell them you’ll get shit done.


We’re not just talking about swapping business cards and coming back with great ideas – we’re talking about doing your job at the conference.

We all know that time spent at a conference can set you back at work as everyday tasks take a back seat to networking and socializing. But they don’t have to. At TNW 2017, enjoy free Wi-Fi throughout the entirety of the conference space. Need to send a last minute email? We’ve got you covered. Literally. In Wi-Fi.

Additionally, get actual work done at a number of areas designed to provide you with a bit more quiet time to focus on small projects that may pop up. Emergency conference call? No need to worry that overzealous attendee will interrupt.

And what’s worse than finally sitting down to complete a task and finding out your laptop is nearly dead. That’s why strategically located recharging areas will be available throughout the conference terrain. There will also be simulcast lounges to give participants the flexibility to work while listening to main stage talks.

But this is TNW, so we understand the value in being inspired, innovative, and collaborative. That’s why during TNW 2017, you’ll enjoy the perfect combination of inspiration, meetings, and workshops… it’s the perfect triple threat of making the most of your conference experience.

At Afterhours, meet leading tech scene influencers in the fields of marketing, entrepreneurship, investment and product management. This informal, one-day-only event is your chance to ask candid questions about companies you admire and products you use.

Attend workshops focused on providing attendees with a masterclass on any given topic. Companies like Bynder, Adobe, New School, IBM and Worldpay will teach design-thinking techniques and give insights on how to build your own chat bot.

Then there’s Engage. Round-table sessions focused on connecting brands with attendees. During 30-minute sessions a selection of tech companies share insights on their industry, talk about their product, and share experiences. This is truly matchmaking for businesses.

As Lisa Shufro, former Executive Producer of TEDMed, points out, “…in business, every day is an event.” At TNW conferences, our events mean business.
