Apple CEO Tim Cook to Speak at First-Ever WSJDLive Conference in October

Apple CEO Tim Cook will be appearing for an interview at the first-ever WSJDLive technology conference in late October.

The invitation-only conference hosted by The Wall Street Journal will be held in Laguna Beach, California from October 27 through October 29. The conference will be hosted by four top editors from the WSJ. Gerard Baker, editor in chief of the WSJ, said:

“In bringing together this global cast of CEOs of some of the world’s largest, most entrepreneurial and most dynamic companies, along with thought leaders, policymakers and innovators, WSJDLive will host an unrivaled conversation about the promise and challenges of the modern digital world.”

In addition to Cook, here is a list of some of the other executives that will be speaking at the conference:

– Hugo Barra, VP, Xiaomi

– Alex Karp, Co-Founder and CEO, Palantir Technologies

– Jack Ma, Executive Chairman, Alibaba

– Noam Bardin, CEO, Waze

– Alexander Ljung, Founder and CEO, SoundCloud

– Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO, Co-Founder and Director, DreamWorks Animation

The event will run at the same time as the Code/Mobile Conference hosted by Re/code’s Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg, who were both former editors for The Wall Street Journal and hosts of the AllThingsD conference that Steve Jobs attended on a number of occasions.

Earlier this year, Apple executive Eddy Cue and Jimmy Iovine joined Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg on stage at the first-annual Code Conference hosted by Re/code.
