Attendees of FT ‘13 will learn how to synthesize visionary knowledge and make it commercially relevant. The uniquely curated FT '13 is layered with exploratory experiences that will take attendees outside the conference room and deep into the heart of Los Angeles for Culture Safaris, Trenz® walks and a narrated gallery tour of the downtown LA art district.
