Two days of innovation and inspiration
for leadership at MIT
November 14-15, 2023

Why you should attend

Side by side with experts

Be a part of the change by connecting with our community of leaders who are working on solutions to some of our greatest questions and concerns. Cut through the noise when it comes to AI, climate change, and biotech; and learn what’s important over two days of sessions curated by MIT Technology Review.

Our journalism brought to life

See our award-winning journalism, as MIT Technology Review editors take the stage alongside leading industry experts. EmTech is where technology, business, and culture converge - showcasing emerging technologies with the greatest potential to change our lives. 

Unparalleled networking

Discuss the big questions and issues of the day with the changemakers in emerging tech and innovation. EmTech speakers are invitation-only, and our attendees are the leaders in the space. Meet, mingle, and participate in open forum discussions to make meaningful connections and grow your personal and professional networks.

Live on the MIT campus

EmTech takes place in the iconic Kresge Auditorium, dedicated to serving as “the meeting house of MIT.” Here you can't help but feel the excitement and inspiration of being at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, surrounded by the top technology minds anywhere.

Leading with innovation

For more than 20 years, EmTech MIT has brought together global innovators, technologists, and industry veterans to explore emerging technologies, developing trends, and their impact on business and society.

Our world is changing rapidly and it’s right in front of us as simple as ABC. AI is accelerating everything we do and experience. Biotech is transforming our demographics and thereby markets, while climate change is forcing us to reconsider the impact of every business decision. To remain competitive, leaders need to understand how these forces of change are upending the rules of business.

This year’s theme, “Leading with Innovation,” aims to unpack what all of this means and lead us down the path towards commercial and social impact with meaningful solutions in a world driven by technology.

Join us and your peers on the MIT campus for your annual dose of emerging technologies and their impact on the world this November.
