The World’s Top 50 Innovators from the Industries of the Future Series, will examine how the next wave of innovation will shape the new economy over the forthcoming two decades. We will invite the scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and visionaries who are building these industries, to better understand where new wealth will be created, whilst also examining the impact on the economy and society. This event will take place over 3 days in London.

The format will be a series of Codex Talks. A Codex Talk is a concise presentation, lasting 15 minutes (or less), in which the speaker addresses a challenging question faced by their technology or industry today and ends with a bold prediction for the future. 

Codex talks are engaging, entertaining and elucidating. They give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.

Tickets can also be purchased from the Codex Eventbrite page
