What is State of the Valley? It’s an annual “town hall” meeting where we assess how our region is faring. The centerpiece is always the Silicon Valley Index, a nationally-recognized report we’ve been publishing annually since 1995. At the conference we’ll provide an in-depth briefing on the 2023 installment, and then you’ll hear from our region’s deepest-thinking experts and decision-makers about what they see ahead.

Owing to continuing concern about the virus and its variants, our 2023 event will once again use a hybrid format. It will happen live and in person at CHM in Mountain View for an audience capped at 300, seated at sponsored tables (distanced, masks encouraged). Your organization can sponsor one of the few remaining tables by contacting our office.

The three-hour event will be broadcast simultaneously via Brandlive, to a sizable audience in the Bay Area and beyond. Registration for the livestream ($35) is simple with a credit card, and we encourage you to grab yours right away.

The 2023 Index paints a picture of a region going through a series of difficult adjustments, across several fronts. We’re going to break it down systematically for you and — because audience surveys have adamantly asked for more — we’re going to allocate considerably more time to the briefing. In fact, we’re going to spread the briefing over two sessions, one on the state of the economy and one on the progress our community is making on its equity, sustainability and other goals.

As always, we’ll also be showcasing the expressive talents of our arts community.

Whether in person or as part of our streaming audience, we hope you’ll join in this important regional conversation.
