Introducing Future State — a new event by Semi Permanent!
Business is being reinvented at a pace never seen before. What do New Zealand business leaders need to be thinking about to be relevant in the fourth industrial revolution? Future State is a one-day series of high-impact business briefings led by innovators at world-changing companies.
The first edition of Future State will explore the driving forces behind the next era of technological innovation, unpacking the challenges and opportunities of the metaverse, AI, VR, gamification, and UX and UI design. The event will offer more just than actionable insights into new technologies through the application of a humanistic lens to the subject matter to better understand how it applies to, and respects, people and the planet. Additional topics will include diversity in digital representation, accessibility, AI biases, digital human rights, low-impact and climate-positive technology, next-generation psychology, and building mental and creative resilience.
Our series of keynote talks are renowned for being inspiring, educational, and highly transferable across business and creative disciplines. Each Conference Pass includes allocated seating for the full day talks program (Thursday 11 May 2023, Spark Arena); fully catered lunch, along with morning and afternoon tea, and refreshments.
