About

TTI/Vanguard is an advanced technology membership for senior-level executives. We introduce, discuss, and evaluate emerging and breakthrough technologies on the two-to-five-year horizon. Through research, conferences, workshops, and field trips, experts offer perspectives on future technologies and their impact on organizations, infrastructures, policies, and society. The result is a framework for linking strategic technology planning to business success. TTI/Vanguard is a wholly owned subsidiary of Euromoney/Institutional Investor PLC, an international business-to-business information company.

Upcoming Events
Benefits

Private Events

Attendance at TTI/Vanguard closed-door conferences, workshops, and regional meetings.

TTI/Vanguard Library

In conjunction with each session, members receive recently published books, chosen to extend on the ideas and topics being addressed. The aggregate of this collection is an impressive library that provides members with additional perspectives on issues covered in the sessions.

Reconnaissance Papers (Preconference)

Several weeks prior to each TTI/Vanguard conference, members receive copies of articles and papers relating to upcoming session topics. These preconference readings complement the conferences and enable attendees to participate actively in formal and informal discussions.

Conference Highlights and Citations

Days after each TTI/Vanguard conference, attendees receive summaries of the speakers' presentations and associated citations. These "trip reports" are available for circulation and discussion throughout member organizations.

Reinforcement Papers (Postconference)

Members receive comprehensive reports from each conference within seven weeks after each session. Reinforcement Papers synthesize key themes and provide expanded summaries from the meetings. Ideas are cross-indexed to previous TTI/Vanguard sessions for thorough referencing.

Field Trips

TTI/Vanguard field trips present opportunities for members to visit the world's leading research institutes and development laboratories. Held in conjunction with several conferences throughout the year, these field trips allow members to preview new technologies and high payoff applications years in advance of their market entry.

Member Archives

During the conference, members have immediate access to speaker slides. Within days of each meeting, audio and slide presentations from each session are posted in the Member Archives. Members have access to this multimedia knowledge base, which also includes related pre- and post-conference papers and reports. Materials are cross-indexed and fully searchable. Conference materials are also available to members via RSS feeds and podcasts.

Workshops

Executive workshops, led by content experts, are one-day seminars conducted for TTI/Vanguard members. Workshops typically focus on the role and influence of new technologies on current and future management and business issues.

TTI/Vanguard LinkedIn Group

Members have access to TTI/Vanguard's LinkedIn group. This LinkedIn group is intended as a "place" to ideate, collaborate, and communicate outside our conference venues throughout the year. LinkedIn group members post articles, questions, and comments, including links to blogs, that they feel will be of interest to others within TTI/Vanguard's community. Postings include ideas about advanced technologies across all technological, scientific, and engineering domains.

[next] Day 1 (2013) was my favorite TTI day ever. The speakers transported us to the future, with innovative personalized technologies ranging from entertainment to transportation to health care.

David Bader, Executive Director of High Performance Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology


Advisory Board

At the heart of TTI/Vanguard’s program is our Advisory Board: a remarkable group of renowned innovators who continually scan the frontiers of technology. Their reach is multidisciplinary … their insights engender discovery. Collectively, they inspire notions about future technologies that will impact the individual and the enterprise.

This was my first time. It was excellent. Superbly well run. Very thought provoking and engaging speakers (I had intended to get some work done, but ended up listening to the speakers all day!!!). Job well done!  

Bart Paulhamus, Information Scientist, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
