In less than a month Xconomy’s newest event, X·CON 2018, will explore the future of innovation across multiple topics and industries, and facilitate deep interactions far beyond your standard conference. It will take place on November 4, 5, and 6 in three innovation venues in Kendall Square and Boston’s Seaport District. The conference is aimed at executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and visionaries who want to explore such questions—and participate in shaping the future.
