Reuters Events is planning the most important technology event in a generation to plot a course towards a more sustainable, equitable and trustworthy world.

The MOMENTUM Virtual forum, on December 9 and 10, will bring together a stellar lineup of board-level executives and aims to attract more than 10,000 attendees in a bid to overcome today’s global challenges and build a better future through technology.

Confirmed speakers include Microsoft’s Chief Information Security Officer Bret Arsenault, Bank of America’s Chief Operations & Technology Officer Catherine P Bessant, Google’s CTO office founder and leader Will Grannis, Facebook’s CIO Atish Banerjea and Comcast’s CISO Noopur Davis, among many others.

“MOMENTUM will unite the global technology community to reimagine and advance the role of tech in building a better society and advanced economy,” said the event’s project director, Jonny Witherspoon.

“At this critical moment in our collective history, MOMENTUM provides the ultimate platform for leading tech innovators and pioneers to showcase their insights and perspectives on how to address the fundamental questions and challenges of how technology can positively shape our future.”

Registration for the MOMENTUM Virtual forum is free with the option of paying for a premium pass with access to networking & the on-demand hub. The event’s two-day agenda will specialize in four key themes:

  • Sustainability and why a more sustainable world requires dramatic changes in how we produce and distribute goods, feed ourselves and move from one place to another, plus how shifts in behavior are paving the way for more sustainable practices.
  • Trust and ethics, and how technological innovation and disruption is developing faster than our existing institutions are shifting. The event aims to answer pressing questions about the positive and negative impact technology can have on our society.
  • Economy and how technology will impact the future of work; with seismic shifts in global employment practices, now is the time to craft the future of the working world, explore new business models and talk tech skills.
  • Society and how education, healthcare and civil society must be reimagined through the lens of what is possible with technology now that it is permeating every aspect of life.

MOMENTUM will feature more than 40 board-level speakers across 25 live and 15 on-demand sessions. The event’s industry-driven agenda includes practical case studies, Reuters editorial interviews and one-to-one networking services.

“Our speakers will be tackling some of the biggest questions of our age, from how can we improve education and make it universally accessible to how to ensure that humanity always remains the master of technology,” said Witherspoon.

“We understand that carefully considered human decisions and collaboration are central to challenge the possible and enable technology to realize its full potential. At MOMENTUM, we will help to build a better future through technology.”

MOMENTUM will take place on December 9 and 10, 2020. For more information, visit or write to
