State of the Net 2018 Registration Open

State of the Net 2018 has been announced. Watch the above video for highlights of the event.

On Monday, January 29, 2018 policy leaders will convene at the 14th Annual State of the Net Conference in Washington, DCthe nation’s premier technology policy conference. Early-bird rates are available for a short time.

Register here.

The upcoming State of the Net conference will cover the most important policy issues facing the Internet today. Congressional and administration leaders will engage with stakeholders on issues such as digital inclusion, freedom of expression, trust & tribalism, broadband fragmentation, innovation, and many more. As always, State of the Net will be your first look at the new players and the new issues that will take center stage in 2018. Whether it’s artificial intelligence or cyber security policies, State of the Net is the best place to debate them all. This conference is unique. It’s been consistently lauded for its balanced blend of perspectives and its provocative thinkers. In an increasingly polarized policy space, State of the Net is the most important stakeholder gathering that brings you together with key people with whom you disagree (respectfully). That’s the point. 

Past keynote speakers includes FCC Chair Tom Wheeler, UBER Founder/CEO Travis Kalanick, Dropbox Founder/CEO Drew Houston and many others. Want to know more? Find out more about our recent past speakers here.

State of the Net attracts over 600 attendees by providing unparalleled opportunities to network and engage on key policy issues. The 2018 edition of State of the Net will take place at The Newseum’s Knight Conference Center.
