This is a critical moment for the tech industry as the global attention has turned towards the role technology is playing in shaping the future and directing today’s world towards that future. Returning again to celebrate this revolution is RISE, the tech conference featuring the tech world’s CXOs, startup founders, investors, social media influencers and tech personalities.

This revolution involves the biggest tech companies in the world, as well as startups, investors, the media, and the individuals who will usher in this new era.
