Commercialising Quantum US

One of the most eagerly awaited quantum events of the calendar year takes place this month at the JW Marriott Marquis, San Francisco. Economist Impact is organizing the Commercialising Quantum US conference, taking place on March 23–24, 2023. This two-day quantum computing conference (first day in-person, second virtual) will cover the promise, the perils, the applications, the limitations, the hype, and the reality of quantum.

Back after last year’s event in London, UK, Commercialising Quantum US 2023 is the place to be for senior business leaders wanting to understand how quantum technology can help their businesses grow.

With proceedings led by editors from The Economist, the Commercialising Quantum US event guarantees an agenda packed full of interesting keynote speeches, fireside chats and panel discussions on topics ranging from building a diverse quantum workforce to advancing automotive industry use cases for quantum technology.


But, the key to any event is always the people invited to speak, and the Economist Impact team has pulled out all the stops to get the cream of the quantum industry at the event.

Dr. Stephanie Simmons, Co-chair of the Canadian National Quantum Strategy Advisory Council and founder and CEO of quantum startup Photonic, will discuss how we can work together to advance quantum for the benefit of humanity.
