HOUSTON, TX. – March 11, 2015What will it take to make Houston the innovation city of the future? Xconomy, the authoritative voice on business and technology in the exponential economy, today announced Houston 2035, a conference designed to look out 20 years and beyond to explore the future of the local high-tech economy—and what today’s stakeholders can do to not only preserve, but enhance the region’s role as a hub for global innovation.

This unique, day-long event will spotlight major, high-growth areas key to ensuring Houston’s future, including Healthcare and Life Sciences; Energy; Education and Talent; and Infrastructure, Design, and Architecture. Additional sessions will look at a range of other fields, such as software, advanced manufacturing, mobile, big data, nanotechnology, and aerospace.

Houston 2035 will be hosted by TMCx at the Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute. It will take place on Thursday, May 21 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., with a networking reception to follow. For information about speakers and registration, go to https://www.houston2035.com/.

Platinum sponsors for the event include local and national leaders in innovation: Texas Medical Center, Gensler, GE Ventures, Rice University, and Shell.

The Gold Sponsor is Luna Data Solutions and Xconomy’s National Partner is Alexandria Real Estate Equities.

Houston 2035 will feature national and local CEOs, entrepreneurs, and other innovators from startups, venture capital firms, universities, and leading technology, life sciences, and energy companies.

“At Houston 2035, we’re aiming to spotlight the incredible innovation ecosystem that’s grown in Houston, which is tackling some of the biggest challenges on the planet, and which far too few people outside of the region know about,” said Xconomy founder and editor in chief Robert Buderi. “We’re excited to bring together leading innovators from the area’s top industries, together with keynoters from outside the region, who we hope will inspire others to explore new horizons and ensure the bright and innovative future that we know is in store for both Houston and Texas.”

Dr. Robert C. Robbins, President and CEO of Texas Medical Center, agrees: “Our goal at Texas Medical Center is not only to cultivate innovation and entrepreneurship in Houston, but to provide the support and tools that will allow industry visionaries to remain in our region. Acting as a sponsor for Houston 2035 is the perfect opportunity to share our mission and promote our city as an industry leader.”
