On September 26th, 2016, hundreds of people came together at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia for the third annual Forge Conference, a one-day event created and organized by O3 World. This year was filled with a diverse group of speakers who all had something valuable to share. The attendees picked up tons of tips on a variety of topics from the curated speakers from companies like Mad*Pow, Odopod, Lyft, Comcast, Slack, and NASA. Furthermore, there was a special Q&A session with Philadelphia’s mayor, Jim Kenney.

Here are some great things some people have said about the event:

If you weren’t able to make it to this year’s sold-out event, don’t worry, we got you covered. This year, we’ve worked with our sponsor Hightail to create a space where a few of the speakers generously shared their presentation slides. This provided access to comment and review each Forge Conference speaker’s story. You can access their presentations at the 2016 Forge Conference Hightail page.
