Event Details

Digital DUMBO and Microsoft are teaming up to bring together leaders from brands who are transforming the future of business with digital products.

Digital DUMBO got its start in 2009 as an event series for the digital community in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn, home to Etsy, Huge (owned by IPG), Carrot Creative (owned by VICE Media), 72 & Sunny, Frog Design, and many more. Nowadays our events bring together digital influencers and executives in the world's most innovative cities.

We're excited to be bringing our first west coast event to San Francisco!

Join us at The Laundry for a panel discussion from digital thought leaders as we discuss how some of the smartest brands in the world are integrating emerging technologies to drive revenue across an omnichannel experience.

We’ll explore:

  • Which emerging technologies brands are paying the most attention to (AI, AR/VR, machine learning, bots, IoT, etc)
  • How emerging technologies will impact and grow revenues
  • Data, and how its being productized
  • The evolution of mobile, web, and what’s next

Before and after the panel we'll have plenty of time for networking, drinks, and light food with some of the smartest minds in digital. We'll also have our special guest Fresh Daily on the turntables all night!
