Influencer Conference 2013 (InfluencerCon) is proud to present Amplify. A monthly global salon series designed to delve deeper into InfluencerCon themes in an intimate setting. Through presentations, keynotes & guest curated panels attendees will be exposed to new ideas and challenged to expand the conversation. Amplify salons will provide a social & intellectual environment to meet fellow influencers, exchange ideas and create change.

Is Ownership Obsolete? When Sharing Isn’t Enough 

The concept of ownership as we know it has been a keystone of industrial age capitalism. The idea that the possession of property (physical or intellectual) can be transferred via legal right is a basic construct that is now taken for granted among a majority of industrialized nations. Does ownership as we know it still work? Does it serve us as we move toward a shared economy? Can Stewardship, as a counter value, unlock innovation and creativity and become the prevailing value of the near future?

Join us for this conversation and stay to network, mix and mingle. Wine and light refreshments will be served.
