Marissa Mayer, Evan Williams Among The Big Thinkers Taking The Stage At The 2013 WIRED Business Conference

This year’s WIRED Business Conference, in partnership with MDC Partners, is thinking bigger. The full-day symposium returns to New York City on May 7, 2013, at the Museum of Jewish Heritage with new faces, fresh takes, and big, big ideas. Registration is limited for the exclusive one-day executive event and is now open at www.wiredbusinessconference.com.

“Breakthroughs and big ideas rarely happen incrementally,” says WIRED Editor in Chief Scott Dadich. “If you want to succeed in this time of constant change, you need to be continually rethinking and reinventing your business, not just improving by 5 or 10 percent. This year's speaker lineup underscores that theme of ‘think bigger’ by celebrating leaders with the vision and courage to deliver the products, innovations, and ideas that inspire the rest of us and move us forward."

This year’s event will feature Yahoo’s new CEO, Marissa Mayer, and Twitter cofounder Evan Williams, as well as intrepid upstarts like Warby Parker’s Neil Blumenthal and Buzzfeed’s Jonah Peretti. The New York TimesJill Abramson, Microsoft Windows VP Julie Larson-Green, and Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs are also among this year’s main stage speakers. Additional speakers will be added to the fifth-annual event, which engages today’s thought leaders in unscripted conversations with WIRED editors.

“The WIRED Business Conference provides extraordinary access to what motivates today’s leaders in a way that only WIRED could,” says WIRED VP and publisher Howard Mittman. “Our unique perspective on where the future of business is heading and the leaders charting its path is reflected in the amazing line up of speakers as well as our partners, who appreciate the need to think bigger.”

"Truly disruptive business transformation simply can't occur without leaders who are driven to think big and make a cultural and structural investment in innovation," says Miles Nadal, founder and CEO of MDC Partners. "As an organization that fuels the ambitions of today's most talented entrepreneurs in order to create that successful transformation on behalf of marketers, MDC Partners is thrilled to partner with WIRED for the fourth consecutive year to provide access to these game changers. It is these discussions, at the intersection of inspiration, entrepreneurship, and action, that will shape tomorrow's business landscape."
