DETROIT (WWJ) – Motown will be the gathering spot for the who’s who of the technology world. The Techonomy Conference, normally held in Tucson, will take place at Wayne State University, hosted by the Detroit Economic Club.

Techonomy Detroit will be a unique one-day multidisciplinary gathering of national and local leaders focused on reigniting U.S. competitiveness, creating jobs, and revitalizing our cities in an age of technology.

Beth Chappell, President and CEO of the Detroit Economic Club spoke to WWJ about the conference:

“They are bringing some of the best minds in technology to talk about U.S. competitiveness, specifically in the area of job creation, cities and urban revitalization, entrepreneurship, and how technology can really be a driver for some of the transformations we’re trying to make,” said Chappell.

Innovators, executives, entrepreneurs, academics and thought leaders from technology, business, government and design will assemble at WSU on September 12, to discuss the far-reaching potential of technology-enabled change to accelerate economic, urban and social progress.
