National Innovation Conference and 40 Under Forty Awards Weekend in Philadelphia, May 4-6, 2018

We proudly announce our National Innovation Conference and Forty Under 40 Awards Weekend in Philadelphia, presented by Mad Dog Technology. The weekend 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 reception takes place this weekend, as well.


This year’s 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.
