The Cairn Story
Inspired by Ancient Markers of the Past
A cairn marks a path without paving it, showing us where we’ve been without pre-determining our destination. It’s a mark, but never a limitation. A cairn provides valuable direction without rigid parameters. It’s nimble enough to be moved, knocked down, and rebuilt as the builders learn more about where we want to go.
With each annual event, Cairn Symposium will build upon a legacy of exploration as science, technology, engineering and entrepreneurship intertwine. It will mark where we’ve been and allow future generations to benefit from a what we’ve learned, without limiting them to paths we could see.
The stones in a cairn support and uphold each other. Like our disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and entrepreneurship, each one can stand alone, but together they create something entirely new and stronger than the sum of its parts. When stacked, what used to be separate building blocks are transformed into a new whole; a marker of discovery.
Join thought leaders in science, engineering, technology, and entrepreneurship as we nurture entirely new ways of thinking, marking the path to a new human experience.
Now Marking the Path of Our Continuing Story
After “laying the first stone” at Cairn Symposium 2019, we’ll continue to shape the convergence movement with annual events based on the foundation we’ve built. Armed with the insights of key thought leaders, Cairn Symposium and its impact on the convergence movement will be expanded in the years to come.
Cairn Symposium for 2020 will include:
3 days of roundtable discussions, panel discussions, and breakout sessions
1,000 plus attendees, made up of high-level executives and entrepreneurs across disciplines
Exhibitor display booths
Cairn Symposium has the potential to evolve into an annual hotbed of thought leadership, where we’ll incubate initiatives that fuel a major paradigm shift in human problem solving. We welcome your involvement as we continue to explore uncharted territory in changing lives.
