Later in London: The Milken Institute’s London Summit, which is typically held in early autumn, will take place a bit later this year – 6 December. The later date will allow for discussions around the effect that both the Brexit referendum and the US presidential elections will have on the global economy. Also in 2016 the London Summit will again be a single day event, after expanding to two days of content last year. More details on the topic coverage may be found here.
Innovation & Beer: After a successful first year, HubWeek will return to Boston from 25 September to 1 October to showcase how local organizations are building innovations solutions to overcome challenges of the future. In addition to some of the more popular events featured last year, such as Celebrate Boston and MIT’s Solve, the 2016 HubWeek will also add a few new experiences to its lineup. One of the more unique, new events is the Brew the Charles competition, where six local breweries will try to create the best beer using water from the Charles River. But never fear, that “dirty water” will first be run through Desalitech’s industry-leading treatment and purification system. For more information on HubWeek events click here.
