Set as a multi-track, one-day event, WIRED Smarter will host more than 30 speakers from a variety of industries, backgrounds and perspectives. Expect top-level headline keynotes, trend-led industry briefings, case-study dissections and lightning showcases from a wide range of inspirational startups and scaleups. As with other WIRED events, the day will culminate in an evening reception with the Test Lab’s selection of hands-on demos and fun exhibits.

Further to the focus on retail, energy and fintech, there will be tailored sessions designed for startups, scaleups and investment attendees announced in the coming weeks.
