We're sorry, OpenAir 2016 is at capacity!


OpenAir is the tech industry’s premier conference focusing on the intersection of our online and offline worlds.

Last year we focused on scaling human connection, this year we are expanding on that concept. Open Air 2016 is about Getting Personal. As we continue to build products that are put to use in the real world and online, we need to consider how we understand people, what they want, how to connect them, and their impact on society.

We’ll be discussing issues such as identity, matching, trust and safety, machine learning, reputation and much more.

This year we’ll have an incredibly robust set of speakers and panels to discuss these topics, including:

  • Stacy Brown-Philpot, CEO of TaskRabbit, discussing the future of work

  • Monique Morrow, of Cisco, sharing how technology can help achieve gender neutrality

  • Max Levchin, CEO of Affirm, sharing unstoppable trends in technology

  • Joe Gebbia, founder of Airbnb, with researchers from Stanford University discussing research on trust

  • Ellen Pao, founder of Project Include, leading a panel on building an inclusive company

  • Sam Lessin, of Fin, discussing the future of reputation

Attendees will get access to technical talks, hands-on sessions and thought-provoking discussions to help tackle some of the biggest challenges and projects in technology and society today. Throughout the day there will be time to network with local engineers, designers, data scientists, academics, take part in interactive sessions, drop in for lightning talks, and meet the speakers.

Registration is $50 and all proceeds, less fees, from registration fees will be donated to CODE2040. CODE2040 is a nonprofit organization that creates programs that increase the representation of Blacks and Latino/a in the innovation economy. CODE2040 believes the tech sector, communities of color, and the country as a whole will be stronger if talent from all backgrounds is included in the creation of the companies, programs, and products of tomorrow.
