“I wanted to say thank you for a well organised opportunity to meet with so many professionals in the creative industry. We have networked with some interesting people and could end up sponsoring a few companies as a direct consequence of the event.”
“Yet again, the WIRED event blew me away – not only some awe-inspiring speakers but where else would I get the chance to exchange ideas from innovators from so many different industries. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Roll on WIRED 2014!”
“Thank you for these incredibly inspiring two days. I do attend quite a few conferences and I must say the Wired event undoubtedly topped every single one of them in 2013. Congrats for assembling such a line up of amazing speakers. Looking forward to next year!”
WIRED2014 – AN INCREDIBLE TWO-DAY EXPERIENCE
WIRED2014 was the fourth two-day flagship event from WIRED. With insights from more than 50 speakers, an interactive Test Lab product area and excellent networking, it brought the WIRED world to life. Where else could you see the likes of advertising legend John Hegarty, musician and entrepreneur will.i.am, genetics entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki and world-renowned designer Ron Arad all in one place?
Once again, the event sold out and was an incredible success. We’d like to thank everyone who came and got involved with WIRED’s greatest event so far.

Telefónica is fascinated by the ideas and innovations changing the world and is a long-standing supporter of WIRED events. One trend that excites the global company is the fact that innovation now comes from everywhere.
Silicon Valley is still hugely influential – but game-changing ideas are now just as likely to come from London, São Paulo or Tel Aviv. This is why it launched Wayra, a technology accelerator, incubating startups in 12 countries across Europe and Latin America. Telefónica gains access to a wider pool of ideas, and the startups get access to Telefónica’s expertise, plus the opportunity to take their products to some 317 million customers.
