Technology and Innovation – America's Comeback

Throughout its history America's great innovators have been the real drivers of America's unsurpassed economic success. Innovation creates jobs, markets, and new industries where none existed before.

Keynote Speaker: Gary Shapiro
President & CEO, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)

Shapiro has spent 30 years at the forefront of America's innovative industry, witnessing firsthand the most exciting, groundbreaking innovations the world has ever known. His time in the Washington trenches, fighting for our nation's innovators, has shown him that when America leads in innovation, America – and the world – moves forward.

His New York Times bestseller, The Comeback: How Innovation Will Restore the American Dream, is a clarion call to the present generation that the America we know, that our parents and grandparents sacrificed for, is courting disaster. It is a disturbing analysis of the state and depth of America's current decline, but from the economy's collapse we have a chance to engineer a true American comeback that reasserts America's hegemony in the world. It starts with innovation.
