Where and when?
The 16th annual FiRe Conference will be held in an intimate setting on October 9–12, 2018, at the Stein Eriksen Deer Valley lodge in Park City, Utah.
What makes FiRe unique?
No other conference offers participants a more accurate view of the technology industry in the next 3-5 years. And no other conference provides the intellectual engagement and challenge you will find at FiRe, in a beautiful environment, meeting with the world leaders who are building that future.
In place of canned PowerPoint speeches, FiRe consists entirely of focused conversations on subjects affecting the near- and mid-term future. The objective is to leverage great minds and the creative process through discussion. New initiatives, relationships and companies have been formed from FiRe.
