Apple CEO Tim Cook will be making a return appearance at the D11: All Things Digital conference in May. Cook will kickoff this year’s proceedings with an opening night interview. The appearance is a followup to his debut at the 2012 conference.
As noted by AllThingsD’s Kara Swisher, Cook gave his first major interview at D10 last year after taking over the reigns from late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs. The Apple executive is expected to again be one of the highlights of the event.
“There’s lots to talk about, from the explosive growth of the mobile market to intense competition from a range of rivals, most especially Google’s Android, as well as innovative offerings from Korea’s Samsung,” Swisher wrote. “It will also be interesting to talk about the changes at Apple under Cook’s leadership, who took over from the late co-founder and industry legend Steve Jobs, as well inquiring about what new products are in the pipeline and how the company is faring in an increasingly high-pressure market.”
D11 will run from May 28 to 30. Other notable tech executives to be interviewed include Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Motorola Mobility’s Dennis Woodside, Pinterest’s Ben Silbermann, Android head Sundar Pichai and Sony’s Kaz Hirai, among others.
