LOS ANGELES, United States — The West Coast of the United States, where the future was always more important than the past, has long been a hotbed of socio-economic innovation, from the dream factory of Hollywood to the tech ecosystem of Silicon Valley. Now, Los Angeles is exploding with fresh energy — and becoming a global hub where the entertainment industry is cross-pollinating with fashion, beauty and technology, creating currents felt around the world.
To explore this new energy, we are delighted to announce the inaugural BoF West summit in partnership with Westfield, which will take place in Los Angeles on June 18. BoF West is the latest in our global portfolio of annual events which includes the BoF 500 Gala in New York, VOICES in Oxfordshire, UK, and the BoF China Summit in Shanghai.
Held in the atrium of the recently reimagined Westfield Century City Mall, BoF West will bring together the BoF community with inspirational keynote speakers — including Kim Kardashian West, one of the cover stars of our latest special print edition — to discuss the intersection of creativity, business and technology. Indeed, with her burgeoning beauty empire KKW, Kardashian exemplifies how the combination of commerce, content and technology is fuelling the creation of creative businesses.
