Last year at Code Conference, co-hosts Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg focused on the convergence of tech, media and politics. They talked with their guests about what this convergence means in an age where it has infiltrated every aspect of our lives. In 2018, Code Conference will dig even deeper into what’s next for industry stalwarts, and we’ll be talking with a new generation of technology titans who are casting the future.
Will blockchain do to the financial services industry what the internet did to print media? How will we accommodate an increasingly obsolete workforce as artificial intelligence makes leaps and bounds? Commercial space travel, genome editing and cyber warfare: It’s all on the table for Code 2018. We don’t know what the world we’ll be living in will look like — but we do know that the products and business decisions happening today will shape the contours of people’s lives for decades to come. And at Code Conference, we’re here to break the news and lead the conversation.
The annual invitation-only Code Conference brings together a global community of the biggest names in the business, executive leaders and startups with bright futures for networking and in-depth conversations about the current and future impact of digital technology.

Media, Recording & Photography Policy
Code Conference stage is on the record for journalistic and editorial purposes. Journalists may quote anything the speakers and Executive Producers say onstage in stories or blog posts. Interviews that occur offstage in the hallways or at social gatherings are subject to whatever ground rules are agreed upon between parties at the time of the interview.
Still photos, taken from your seats, are OK. We ask that you do not use flash so as not to distract or annoy the speakers or others in attendance. Do not stand or crouch in the aisles or near the stage, as this interferes with our official show photographer, whose photos will be posted online for use by members of the media.
Finally, video and audio recordings are strictly prohibited, as we consider the audio and video content of our stage to be copyrighted. Similarly, while we respect fair-use reprinting of short text quotes, we do consider full transcripts of the conference to be our intellectual property.
This policy applies to all conference attendees.
