If there’s one event I love returning to, it’s TNW. They never cease to surprise me with their attention to detail and their ability to make you feel part of the family. It’s a great way of connecting with friends from the industry – both old and new.

12 years of "what did I just witness?"

Our story

Think about all the things that you could achieve in 12 years. Malcolm Gladwell says you need 10,000 hours to become an expert in something, but after 100,000 happy hours of existence our events are now turning into teenagers – and that means they've taken on a life of their own. 

It also means attending a TNW event comes with certain guarantees. We have a minimum standard that we've maintained for more than a decade, a strong habit of surprising our audiences by pushing boundaries, and a sixth sense when it comes to delivering exciting new concepts. Most importantly however, attending a TNW event has matured into a watertight investment with a serious ROI. We might only be turning 13, but we know how to treat our delegates like grown-ups.
