The Imagination Age

We are entering a new era for unrestrained creativity and sustained innovation – the Imagination Age. In this age, our ability to dream is hyper-accelerated with digital innovation and advancements in AI, 5G, Quantum, Holograms and Digital Twins. In this era, we will unlock and experience the Omniverse – the convergence of the physical, virtual and augmented reality worlds. We will have total freedom to envision new thoughts and create unlimited solutions with new channels and platforms for producing, distributing, and consuming products and services. Industries will profoundly transform and organizations will have to re-invent themselves to thrive in this new age.

In this keynote, futurist and best-selling author, Kevin S. Parikh, CEO and Chairman of Avasant will share his vision for the world ahead. He will unveil his predictions for the future of work, and the way we live, engage, and interact in the Imagination Age. Join us as we set the vision for the future!
