Since 2007, The PSFK CONFERENCE series has catered to creative professionals from around the world, exploring the latest trends, inspirations and ideas. PSFK brings together the world’s agenda setters from both established and emerging organizations to bring to life the conversations that take place daily on

We set an agenda that allows participants to meet and discuss with one another, together sharing and building upon the ideas brought forth from the stage. Our conferences offer a diverse program of speakers with backgrounds in art, technology, design, marketing and media and in doing so creates an environment where disparate ideas can come together in new ways to fuel work that changes our work, culture and the world for the better.

This year, we will be focusing on the idea of ‘influencers.’ What that means? Who they are? How that title is decided? Join us this October in San Francisco for conversations by influencers, about influencers, to decide how was assign value in our society.
