DIGITAL INNOVATION SUMMIT

FWD is a full-day interactive summit with revealing explorations of bold, innovative ideas and immersive, emerging tech experiences designed for forward-thinking executives.

BREAKTHROUGH: A CELEBRATION OF RELENTLESS PURSUITS

The world has long been filled with breakthroughs, many of which we take for granted today.

The internal combustion engine, modern medicine, and the touchscreen have immeasurably improved our lives. These, like everything we know and use today, was a massive shift at some point. This is what Solstice FWD19 is all about.

We’ll explore the people, processes, and problems that arise in the pursuit of greatness. The latest thinking in digital disruption from those creating today’s biggest breakthroughs. We’ll experience hands-on, immersive technologies, networking, and knowledge building.

You won’t want to miss a minute.
