Future Roads Ahead

An immersive journey to the intersection of human experience and technology

October 29, 2019 | Tyler Perry Studios, Atlanta

The pace of technological advancement is propelling us to heights unimagined. There can also be unintended consequences. 

How do we ensure the human experience and personalization are at the center of the new agile and adaptive workplace made possible by the technology revolution? 

Future Roads Ahead is a breakthrough format developed for Atlanta’s most senior business leaders facing this question. In this immersive environment, we’ll encounter thought-provoking business leaders, cutting-edge tech innovators, digital specialists and emerging technologies that have remade business, remade society — and remade us. 

Together, we’ll experience automation from vehicles to vegetables and e-sports to electronic mind control, firsthand. We may even go for a stroll on Mars. With this inspiration, we’ll reimagine how we, as Atlanta’s senior leaders, can contribute to building a human experience and global economy where everyone can contribute, invent, grow and share. A place where people and business can thrive. 

We’ll meet at Tyler Perry Studios, within the decommissioned Fort McPherson Army base — a property that embodies its own story of transformation as it’s now poised to become one of the largest motion picture studios in the U.S. 

We hope you’ll make plans to join us.
