2013 HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO
“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 INNOVATION FELLOWSHIPS
The WIRED Innovation Fellowships were open to any individual working in fields covered by WIRED who, in the team’s opinion, has the potential to make a significant impact on the world.
Competition was fierce among the emerging innovators in science, technology, design, culture, business, the arts, and other fields covered by the magazine, who both excited in their fresh and energetic approach, and who have achieved a proven track record of early success. People were invited to apply to become a fellow in January 2014 and WIRED had almost 200 high calibre applicants.
The WIRED Innovation Fellows will have speaking slots on stage at WIRED 2014.

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 technical expertise, plus the opportunity to take their products to some 317 million customers.
