Again, that’s only the tip of the iceberg, there’s dozens upon dozens of other speakers from every industry you can think of.

Here’s the full list of speakers, and you can check out the entire agenda here.

Whatever your goal for the event is, you’re bound to find something for you – and there’s also a ton of opportunities for networking. 

As always, The Next Web is offering a few different tiers based on your needs. This year, they are Business Pass, Executive Pass, Investor Pass, and Startup Program. 

Some offer 1-hour calls with a TNW founder and some include meetings with investors, so make sure you choose the right one!

And if you’re only interested in specific aspects of the conference, TNW has that covered, too.

The entire event is split into 5 different “topics”:

  • Shift | Future of mobility

A series of talks on travel, electric & self-driving cars, spedition, and the mobility industry at large.

  • Hard Fork | A new era in finance

Dubbed “Europe’s boldest IRL crypto conference”, Hard Fork is primarily focused on modern approaches to money and markets, as well as the future of finance as a whole.

  • Neural | The next level of AI

You knew it was going to be here somewhere – TNW’s Neural conference is entirely about AI, machine learning, and robotics – particularly in the context of today’s hyperconnected landscape.

  • #TechFT Live x TNW

Emerging tech, quantum computing, the emerging need for RegTech to address today’s dynamic landscape – everything bleeding-edge is here.

  • TNW Conference 2021

Access to the whole event, allowing you to pick and choose as you please.

Each includes access to different speakers, so again, choose what matches your interests best and go nuts. Some of them are pretty cheap!

So there it is, another year, another TNW, but it seems that this year’s theme is “Back with a Vengeance”.
