There are exactly 50 days left until TNW Conference. Do you know what that means? It means if you haven’t got your ticket yet, I’m officially offended. You really don’t want to be missing out, so get yours now.

We’ve got so much fun stuff in store, and I can’t even tell you everything yet – but I will in the next few weeks, so stay tuned! Today, I’d really like to talk about how attending our conference is not just for your own benefit, but rather for the greater good. Let me explain…

You can save the universe

It’s no secret that we’ve got a few large-scale issues on our hands. While technology has played a role in some of them, like global warming, I’m a firm believer in technology solving these problems too. At TNW2019, our Future Generations track is going to talk about how new innovative tech could be the answer to achieving the UN’s 17 sustainability goals.

The best part is that your attendance will help shape how we use this tech in the future. Through roundtables and keynotes, we’ll dive into environmental, political, and societal issues and question how to solve them. We’ll hear from incredible speakers, like James Beacham, Particle Physicist at CERN, and Eva Gladek, Founder and CEO of Metabolic. Make sure you join us because one day your babies will look up at you and say, “thanks for making the world a better place by attending TNW2019.”

A ticket to TNW2019: €649

Saving the universe: Priceless.

Wow, so shiny

Before I highlight today’s TNW2019 speaker, I’d like to announce that we have a new trailer for our conference! Watch it, it’ll give you goosebumps:


Speaker spotlight: James Beacham

James Beacham is a particle physicist at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, where he hunts for evidence of dark matter, gravitons, quantum black holes, and dark photons. He’s a member of the ATLAS collaboration, one of the teams that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012.

You might’ve heard that CERN is hopefully getting a bigger and better particle collider – four times the size of the existing one and 100km long. Do you have any idea how cool this is? It’s going to allow for new discoveries that will redefine what we know about our universe. At TNW2019, James will tell you exactly how amazing this will be. Don’t miss it, because science!

That concludes today’s TNW2019 Daily. Tune in tomorrow for more of my fabulous personality (and conference highlights), and catch up on previous editions right here.
