Since its inception, PARC has pioneered many technology platforms– from the Ethernet and laser printing to the GUI and ubiquitous computing – and has enabled the creation of many industries. Incorporated as an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of Xerox in 2002, PARC today continues the physical, computer, & social sciences research that enables breakthroughs for our clients' businesses.

Join us for an exclusive tour and presentation at the storied institution that created laser printing, Ethernet, GUI, and more and is now delivering incredible new research and innovations to clients across many industries. Lawrence Lee, Senior Director of Strategy, will be the host for this event.
