Coming soon to a city near you

Connect with the Luminary Labs team at an upcoming conference.

Different conferences are good for different things — which is why we want to be in different places throughout the year. At some events, we’re looking for what’s new and what’s next. At others, we’re seeking connections and conversations with a specific type of audience. But no matter where we go, we want to connect the dots across our focus areas: the future of health, the future of work and education, scientific discovery, and infrastructure. We also want to ask important questions that transcend topics and industries, exploring intersections with climate, equity, and economic prosperity.

If you’re also thinking about the future and considering new ways to solve thorny problems, we’d love to connect. Say hello to the Luminary Labs team when we’re in a city near you.
