Join us for PopTech 2022: Departure/Arrival, October 27-29, LIVE in Washington, DC

Early Bird Registration is now Open! Score a $500 discount, plus a $1000 tax deduction as the program comes together. The Early Bird rate ends on June 30, 2022, or when the first 100 tickets are sold, whichever comes first. Once registered, you’ll receive a discounted lodging link for Eaton Hotel, our super cool clubhouse for the conference.

What to Expect? Provocative talks, interactive sessions, lunches in Franklin Park, nighttime fun, and an immersion into the vibe and culture of one of America’s great cities. Thanks to a remarkable partnership with Eaton Hotel, Planet Word, and Ghost Note, we’ve amped it up, creating an amazing campus in the heart of DC. We promise you will not experience the DC of your 8th-grade field trip or that trade show you attended back in 2019!

Who’s Coming? We are delighted to welcome Moran Cerf back as our program host. As always, we are putting together a stellar line-up to explore the landscape of a changing world. Get ready! The first speaker announcement will go live in early July.

Bring Your Team (or just some friends)! What better way to re-engage and energize your colleagues and clients, or simply reconnect with friends. Contact info@poptech.org for special group pricing.

At PopTech 2009, the mayor of Braddock, PA, spoke of reviving his community. Today John Fetterman is running for the US Senate seat in Pennsylvania.
