TEC Summit: Technology & Society after the Pandemic

During the pandemic, technology had its moment, transforming the workplace, our homes, and all facets of our lives. Add to that the increased advancements and prevalence of artificial intelligence, the Metaverse, and cybersecurity, and there’s no more critical time to talk about both the benefits and challenges of this new digital frontier.  

Bringing together industry thought leaders, stakeholders, CNBC journalists, and Technology Executive Council members, the 4th Annual CNBC Technology Executive Council Summit is the ideal forum to tackle these pressing issues. The half-day summit combines moderated panels, smaller interactive group discussions, and peer-to-peer networking opportunities.
