The Technology Policy Institute’s 2013 Aspen Forum will be held August 18 – 20 at the St. Regis Aspen Resort in Aspen, Colorado.


The TPI Aspen Forum brings together leaders from business, government, and academia to discuss key public policy issues affecting information and communications technology. This year’s theme is, "Creative Destruction and Growth: Policy Choices."


The IT revolution has been the poster child for Schumpeterian creative destruction, yielding innovations whose effects on our lives extend far beyond statistics on R&D spending imply.  From infrastructure to applications, experimentation with technologies and business models has been essential to the success of the Internet economy.  A policy environment that permits such experimentation is crucial for this era’s creative destruction to continue.  Discussion panels and speakers at the 2013 TPI Aspen Forum will focus on competition, privacy, data security, and other regulatory policies critical to the health of Internet economy. 


Registration is now open and a discounted registration rate is available for industry attendees until July 1. Details on the agenda will be announced soon. For additional information, contact Jane Creel at Members of the press should contact Amy Smorodin at
