The WIRED Business Conference took place on June 16th. Once again we took you beyond the usual suspects. We introduced you to the most important people in the modern business universe. These are the unsung creative, technical, and social visionaries working to bring the incredible world of tomorrow to you today. They are what’s NEXT.

Featuring an interactive cross-pollination of approaches and solutions, this day-long event was designed to inspire fresh thinking and new ideas. The speakers shared secrets and novel approaches to problem-solving, delivering the critical insights that only come when you’re prepared to challenge the status quo. That was the WIRED Business Conference 2016.
