Atlanta is a city in the midst of a burgeoning arts, technology and cultural renaissance. The media and entertainment sectors are on fire, with a significant rise in the number of multi-platform content productions originating or relocating to the Big Peach. A steady drumbeat of new tech companies and increased angel and early stage fundings underscore a growing technology scene that is attracting a large number of entrepreneurs and innovation. Strong fashion, publishing and cultural brands are popping up with exciting ideas and individuals shepherding thought leadership in those industries. Atlanta has quietly positioned itself at the intersection of the arts, tech and media sectors, which presents incredible opportunities for the city.

Come and be part of this powerful conversation that will feature thought provoking panelists who will discuss how these developments are changing the city of Atlanta, and offering the citizens a full blown menu of opportunities to create magic. We will have speakers who are entrepreneurs, investors, creators…this is the one you don’t want to miss if you are looking for a dynamic and engaging dialogue on the future of Atlanta.
