Sooner Than You Think London

Sooner Than You Think is Bloomberg’s flagship technology series, with annual editions in North America, Asia and Europe. This June, the series returns to London, attracting 600+ technology leaders.

Change is coming.

Sooner than you think.

Backed by the unmatched data and analytical power of Bloomberg’s global resources, Sooner Than You Think London delivers bankable insight into the near-future of business and innovation and the market forces and technological breakthroughs already transforming our global economy.

Uncertainty has come to define our time, as market volatility, climate change, political instability and disruptive innovation upend centuries of commerce, culture and tradition. The result: Risks and opportunities that will occur Sooner Than You Think.

What does the near-future of work look like as digital transformation changes the way companies do business? What changes are reshaping mobility as we stand on the cusp of a driverless, pilotless, ownerless revolution? What can we expect in global commerce as the role of banks shifts, currencies are decentralized and cash tender becomes obsolete? And what does the future hold for London — the city that has defined Europe’s tech scene — as it seeks to redefine itself and its relationship with Europe.

Join us as Bloomberg brings together the sharpest minds on the planet to answer these vital questions.
