We’re excited to begin planning for our National Innovation Conference and Forty Under 40 Awards Weekend in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, PA, May 4-5-6, 2018.
The National Innovation Conference (NIC) was created to provide a forum for dynamic speakers who have a great story to share, with audiences thirsty for knowledge and networking. The day unfolds with a series of inspirational talks by noted speakers on various topics, as well as discussions and panels with opinion leaders.
Our Forty Under 40 Awards recognize our community’s top, young talent in business, the arts, the sciences and other fields.
Together, we have created an important weekend event where dynamic people come together to learn, to network and to celebrate excellence.
This year’s weekend events are planned in association with the National Hellenic Students Association.
Temple University’s Fox School of Business is our hosting sponsor and we’re excited to introduce our conference participants to the historic and dynamic university, where the majority of our events will take place.
