“Be there to witness the future, as it happens” @WIRED 2013 this October


This October London is gearing up for the electrifying conference. On 17th and 18th October 2013, WIRED 2013 together with Telefónica will be back to celebrate people and ideas that make up WIRED. The third annual event is happening yet again to relive the values of WIRED. This 2 day conference will be home to awesome futuristic ideas. Speakers from across the globe will be here to shed light new ideas. Those participating will come face to face with newest of innovations and embark on a journey of inspiration and discovery. WIRED 2013 can be called a catalyst for spreading ideas across the globe.


The themes for WIRED 2013 will include “Bringing the next billion online“, “the brain decode“, “the new makers” and “the power of the unseen“. Thinkers and rule breakers from every corner will come together because they don’t like to accept the world as it is, and they aspire to change it with their high thoughts and ideals. The strict boundaries for diverse fields like pop culture, healthcare, nanotechnology, big data, social media, business and many more will be pushed further to make place for new innovative ideas.

The WIRED event has been a huge success from the time it started in 2011. Basking in the glory of success and praise from first two years, this year be sure to see an unique blend of people. Delegates will come over to broadcast concepts, talk on the event content and establish new connections.


What will follow is WIRED Next Generation event : A one day event to celebrate and inspire entrepreneurs of the future, on 19th October 2013 at the same place. On this day, around 50 speakers, technologists, innovators, performers, inspirational entrepreneurs and artists will come down to lighten up London’s Tobacco Dock from 10 am to 6 pm. While tickets are already put up on sale for this event, another awesome way to reach here is- WIRED Next Generation App Competition.
