Program: Supernova is unlike any other business event. It is the only conference that brings business leaders and technology innovators together to explore the far-reaching implications of an increasingly distributed business environment, in which new software, devices, communications links and media forms connect a growing virtual workforce. And, with its global community of technologists, corporate executives, investors and media, it has become the place to network with the industry’s top power-players.
Special Wharton networking events at Supernova:
- Wharton Workshops - leading industry experts provide examples of practical applications and real-world success stories of “networked” technologies. Topics include: economics of virtual worlds, beyond business blogging, community marketing, re-connecting telecom, the new video ecosystem, the new Personal InfoSphere, rethinking intellectual property, consumer-generating content and new marketing models, what “Web 2.0 means for business, and more.
- Wharton Reception - a kick-off networking reception will feature a Technology Showcase of select business solutions providers. WCNC members will gather with Wharton affiliates and the Supernova technology community for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

Just connecting to the network is no longer enough. In today’s chaotic, interconnected environment, success requires the ability to identify key relationships, and to stand out from the crowd. New industry ecosystems are developing, while new forms of innovation emerge on top of connected platforms.

At Supernova 2006, we will examine how leading entrepreneurs, investors, and companies are not only coping with complexity, but taking advantage of it.
