Montgomery Summit returns in-person to Santa Monica next week

iNDICA News Bureau-

March Capital’s 19th annual Montgomery Summit will be held May 24-25, at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows in Santa Monica, CA.

Last year in March, the summit was held in virtual mode for the first time with over 4,000 attendees and 250 speakers (including from more than 100 innovative private companies) tuning in from around the world.

This year the summit is back in physical mode.

For almost two decades, the Montgomery Summit has brought leading entrepreneurs, technology executives, investors and thought leaders to share insights, encourage innovation and challenge the status quo.

Over the past two years, the continued rapid digital transformation of the global economy has created an unprecedented disruption, investment opportunities and wealth and the organizers said now is a good time to evaluate where we are and what the future holds.

At any time, Montgomery Summit attendees can enjoy one of seven parallel sessions during the day and a half of programming — featuring stellar keynote speakers, panel sessions on creativity, leadership and innovation, and dynamic private company presentation.

The summit consistently features global leaders and influencers as keynote speakers. This year, guests will hear from luminaries who continue to drive significant and impactful innovation in technology, finance, and leadership:
