Worlds Fair Nano, a nationwide future-focused festival that aims to inspire, entertain, and celebrate future technology, food, music and art, has announced that United States Senator for Virginia and 2016 vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine has joined as a keynote speaker for the upcoming New York event hosted at the Brooklyn Expo Center and Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse on Saturday and Sunday, September 16-17, 2017.
