Speaking about last year's event, WIRED Editor David Rowan said: 

"There was a very special vibe at WIRED 2011, where in the conference hall you really felt you had a pulse on the future. With speakers from all over the world, from India to Australia; with top UK influencers from the WIRED100; with senior policymakers, investors and entrepreneurs packing the audience - it was a magical community where ideas exploded, networks were built and minds were hyper stimulated. I can't wait to do it again in 2012"
