Why Telluride?

The Tech Fest is based on the historical fact that in 1891, Nikola Tesla, George Westinghouse and Telluride’s own L.L. Nunn built the world’s first commercial grade AC power plant in Telluride. Each year, present day honorees are selected that exemplify the life, times and standard of contribution of these inventors, who not only changed the world—they electrified it.

The history, unique mountain environment and social atmosphere make it the perfect place to contemplate the future of technology.
