The two-day WIRED conference hosted by the science and technology magazine, WIRED, aims to shed light on the people disrupting the status quo. A diverse line-up of high profile speakers in 2013, the third year event is being held in London, includes Bjork, Lang Lang, Dame Ellen MacArthur and Lord Martin Rees. Not just for IT boffins, the event attracts entrepreneurs, investors and key industry figures to Tobacco Dock for two days of seminars, workshops and talks. Packed with stimulating content, networking opportunities, savvy ideas and inspiring talks from 40 international speakers, WIRED explores the ideas, innovations and people that are reshaping the world - and typically attracts a sell-out crowd of 450 delegates. A wide range of topics is covered from science and politics to business and pop-culture. For those at the cutting edge of ideas, technology, culture and business, this is a must-attend event in the diary.

 

About Tobacco Dock

Built in the early 19th century as a secure warehouse for receipt and storage of tobacco from the New World, Tobacco Dock is now a unique space that plays host to high profile events each year. Re-launched in October 2012, it has its own outdoor, quayside space as well as a Great Gallery, Vaults, a Quayside Bar and unique walkways that stretch for more than 100 metres.
