The Tysons Chamber Tysons 2050 expo is a premiere event featuring 3 forty-five minute panels centered on the ways Tysons will develop into the next great city in America. Our panels will be divided into 3 topics around how people in Tysons in 2050 will Live, Work and Play.
This event will be open to the general public, with the intent to inspire, educate, and develop an enhanced awareness to the incredible opportunities of the future. We will showcase visionaries, forward-thinkers, and people instrumental in helping make Tysons a better place, year after year.
Throughout the event, attendees will be free to roam throughout the expo space, learning about near-future advancements in technology; such as virtual reality, drones, and futuristic foods. Attendees will have multiple opportunities to learn about the leaders within our community and engage them on how their businesses are preparing for the future and looking towards a better tomorrow.
The intent is to have people come try things they've never tried before and to learn from local thought leaders about what's coming. Attendees should leave optimistic and excited about the future of Tysons.Agenda & Speakers:
