Boston is a forward-thinking city. We're always innovating, and
FutureM celebrates that. FutureM is not an event. It's not a
conference. In fact, there's nothing like it anywhere else. If you
think you don't have time to spend away from your desk - think
again! FutureM will get you so inspired, you'll accomplish your
next two weeks of work in just one.
Boston is one of the world's most innovative cities, and just
the place to host FutureM week. FutureM combines the best elements
of traditional events - like talented speakers, product launches,
and networking opportunities - with the thrill of the future.
You'll hear about things you've only dreamed of, and meet people
you never imagined you'd meet.
FutureM is so future-oriented, we had to make up a new word to
describe it: futurey! (Tell your spellcheck.) FutureM's events are
not about now; they're about soon, later, and WAY later. You'll
learn about brand new concepts, and wildly futuristic ideas. Boston
is a city full of innovators, and we think it's the perfect host
for this futuristic event experience.
Remember in elementary school how your teachers always wrote
"HAVE FUN!" on the blackboard before field trips? FutureM is like
that, but all grown-up. You won't walk away from this week with
a long list of to-do's; instead you'll leave FutureM feeling
happy, inspired, and (if you've been to some parties) possibly a
little bit drunk.
More than just "that dirty water," the Charles River, which
stretches across 23 miles of Boston, is a cultural landmark. Start
your day with a scenic run along the Charles River Esplanade. Then
stretch out on one of the wooden docks, gaze at the river, and
think deep thoughts.
The Boston Common is the oldest public park in the country, and
a favorite spot for both visitors and native Bostonians. Grab a cup
of coffee at the Thinking Cup or the Boston Common Coffee Company,
and take a stroll. We promise we won't let it rain.
MIT is well-known for regularly producing some of the most
innovative inventions in the world. The MIT Museum "explores invention, ideas, and innovation" - and we know
you're all about that. Visit the museum, walk around campus,
and soak up rays of technology.
Does "sweet potato fries" get you all excited? Good. You can
keep reading. You don't have to be a hipster to appreciate Kendall
Square's funkiest diner. Enjoy a tasty brunch at The Friendly
Toast, and follow it up with a movie at the nearby Kendall Square
The Institute of Contemporary Art is the first new art museum to
be built in Boston in a century. The museum overlooks the Boston
Harbor, and Logan Airport across the way - and it's worth visiting
just to eat lunch in the cafe and gaze at boats. The award-winning
building was modeled after nearby waterfront gantry cranes, and you
could argue that the ICA's architecture rivals the art inside.
The Omni Parker House, located in the heart of downtown Boston,
is one of America's oldest luxury hotels. And for you believers,
it's also one of the most haunted spots in the country. (Ooh!) In
spite of the ghosts, you'll have a wonderful time eating lunch at
the Parker's Restaurant, where you'll enjoy a mix of nostalgic and
Beacon Hill is one of Boston's smallest (and most beautiful)
historic neighborhoods. Well-known for its Federal-style rowhouses,
Beacon Hill oozes history. Stroll by the Massachusetts State House,
and then enjoy a quiet dinner at one of this neighborhood's many
The North End is Boston's oldest residential community - and it
certainly feels well-established. The area is dominated by
Italian-Americans, and boasts some of the best restaurants in the
city. Have a sweet tooth? Help us answer the age-old question: are
the cannolis better at Mike's Pastry or Modern Pastry?
Located on the 14th floor of ONE Marina Park Drive,
MassChallenge is the largest-ever start-up accelerator and
competition, and the first to support high-impact, early-stage
entrepreneurs with no strings attached. You're guaranteed to meet
the future leaders of innovation here.
Food trucks are exploding on Boston's food scene. Make your way
to South Station (just blocks from Seaport and the Financial
District) and grab a bite at one of the many food trucks parked in
Dewey Square. The options are endless, and you'll no doubt walk
away feeling satisfied.
