About Emtech

Technology Review’s annual Emtech is the premier conference focused on emerging technologies and their impact. Now in its 11th year, this unique event brings together business leaders, senior technologists, investors, and innovative entrepreneurs to discuss the technological innovations that are changing the face of business and driving the global economy.

Emtech is a place where technology, business, and culture converge. It is a showcase for emerging technologies with the greatest potential for commercial impact. It is an access point to the most innovative people and companies from around the world. Most of all, it is a place of inspiration: a place to glimpse the future of technology and begin to understand how it is going to impact the world and your business.

Emtech is a community, a network, and a meeting place for business leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, and change makers worldwide who are passionate about turning ideas into solutions and addressing major global issues. We are driven to answer the challenge of the imagination by inspiring cutting-edge, innovative thinking.

The conference is curated by the editorial staff of Technology Review, the world’s oldest magazine covering emerging technologies. It has grown into an influential annual event and a dynamic global community, with events in China, India, Italy, and Spain.
