The emerging technologies reshaping business

For COOs, CIOs and IT leadership, EmTech Next uncovers the opportunities exposed by cutting-edge technologies that are reshaping the way business innovates, operates and grows.

Our agenda for this 6th edition of our signature digital transformation event covers generative AI, web3, metaverses, leadership strategies for the digital workforce, technology and industry 4.0, and the emerging technologies transforming the customer experience.

What to expect

The Digital Transformation Event

Separating the transformational from the transient, MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Next breaks down the emerging technology breakthroughs in a structured quest to uncover the most impactful technologies that will change the ways business runs.

For the Leaders of Technology-Driven Organizations

Businesses built on technology must constantly monitor for emerging technology trends that will disrupt their industries, change consumer behavior, alter economics, and transform lives. To successfully lead in an environment of continual change requires reasoned insight from trusted sources to make confident business technology decisions.

On the Inspirational MIT Campus

EmTech Next is hosted on the MIT campus, in the heart of “the most innovative square mile on the planet.” Our speakers are personally invited and not selected from unsolicited applications. On-stage, they are interviewed, unscripted, by MIT Technology Review’s award-winning editors. Our attendance is capped, attracting the most curious and innovative minds in technology.
