At Brainstorm Tech, Fortune’s award-winning journalists interrogate the most potent issues at the intersection of Silicon Valley, Wall Street, Washington, and Hollywood – and their impact on the world.

With economic optimism on the horizon and recession risk in the rearview, is a tech comeback in the cards?  Where have futurists placed their bets? Who has best prepared for the opportunities ahead? And will this year’s political cycle help or hurt the tech industry’s ability to land a knockout punch?

Once again (now for 23 years), Fortune Brainstorm Tech brings together a community of Fortune 500 leaders with top investors, VCs, banking executives, startup founders, and global influencers. Gathering at the Montage Deer Valley, the program delivers the hallmarks of Fortune Live Events: engaging content, impactful networking, and meaningful takeaways, always in an idyllic setting that offers the very best in curated activities, cuisine, and entertainment.

Fortune Brainstorm Tech


Fortune Brainstorm Tech is an invitation-only community of pioneering technologists, innovative Fortune 500 leaders, shrewd investors, eminent entrepreneurs, and global influencers interested in discussing the most pressing issues in business and the role of technology in solving—or exacerbating—them. Each year 10 community members are selected to serve as the Brainstorm BrainTRUST, an advisory board that draws from its members’ wealth of industry expertise to guide development of the Brainstorm community and experience.

Since 2001 Brainstorm Tech has convened the brightest minds in technology, business, and beyond for a multi-day mountain retreat to discuss and debate the most potent issues in business, society, and the global innovation economy. The magic of Brainstorm lies in putting this community in collective conversation with the guidance of Fortune’s award-winning journalists. Together—and in an array of formats and venues—we explore and interrogate what is novel and top of mind for anyone operating at the cutting edge. Democratic discussion engages community members and actionable takeaways ensure they stay ahead of the curve with insights and connections to drive their success.

For nearly a century Fortune has been a trusted resource to help the world’s business leaders see around corners. We are unrivaled in our ability to convene key business-decision-makers and create forums for actionable intelligence.
