Collaborating to Drive Technology Innovation
Our mission is to help advance innovation by bridging the gap between D.C. and Silicon Valley, and Tech Policy Summit is open to anyone with an interest in being part of this conversation because we believe policy is everybody's business.
The seventh edition of Tech Policy Summit will be held November 6-7, 2013 at the Silverado Resort in Napa, CA.
Together, participants will explore important questions about how policy impacts - or stands to impact - emerging technologies and America's competitiveness in the global marketplace. We will also look at how people are using social media and other technologies to impact the policymaking process.
The preliminary schedule will be available later this
spring. You can learn more about last year's program on
the Schedule page. There are also videos from the 2012 conference, and we've posted photos on Flickr.
HOW TPS IS DIFFERENT
We frequently attend other industry events and we know the pain of sitting in a conference ballroom as speaker after speaker lectures you.
Our response to that mind-numbing approach? To think differently!
For starters, we prefer candid conversations to canned presentations and there is a strict rule banning slides. The format will be fast-paced and interactive, and we promise an experience this is both informative and engaging for everyone involved.Learn More »
WHO WE ARE
Even though we’ve been producing Tech Policy Summit for six years now, we still receive questions from curious people asking who we are.
With so many powerful players involved in the tech policy arena, from associations and think tanks to lobbying organizations and law firms, those people are often surprised when they find out that Tech Policy Summit isn’t produced by any of the above.Learn More »
In addition to producing Tech Policy Summit, we also host the annual Privacy Identity Innovation conference that explores how to protect sensitive information while enabling emerging technologies and business models.
The 4th edition of Privacy Identity Innovation, pii2013, will be held place September 17-18 in downtown Seattle at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center.Learn More »
