Wired Media Group Launches Subscription Program

Only $4,000 a year.

Condé Nast’s Wired Media Group—which includes Wired, Ars Technica and Backchannel—is launching a membership program for execs who want to stay ahead of the tech curve.

The Emerging Tech Council is an online community featuring live events, meetings, virtual conferences, dinners, a curated reading list, a members-only newsletter and more. The price tag for a Emerging Tech Council membership (up to five people) is a mere $4,000 per year.

“Our goal with creating the Emerging Tech Council is to provide executives with a cost-effective, reliable pipeline to the next wave of emerging technologies, in order to future-proof their businesses against the relentless disruption,” said Kim Kelleher, CRO and publisher of the Wired Media Group, in a statement.

The Tech Council’s first virtual event will be in January 2017, featuring a discussion on artificial intelligence and machine learning with Ars Technica’s founder and editor in chief Ken Fisher.
