Next.2018 is a conference with a purpose: to create new connections and bridge gaps between American innovators and Washington’s ideas and influence community.

Our speakers and attendees share a commitment to realizing the potential of new innovations, and to understanding and navigating the full range of their implications on policy and business – an angle that no one can cover quite like Bloomberg.

Taking place one week after the mid-term elections, Next.2018 will embed the outcomes of the election and the outlook for policy across a range of technology-focused issues.

Join us for solution-driven conversations, experiences that bring transformative advancements to life, and powerful connections that drive collaboration and community.

Topics include:

  • Leveraging the power of connected devices in disrupted industries
  • Empowering citizens to play a role in smart city development
  • Evaluating America’s place in the global race for AI dominance
