99U Conference

99U Conference 2014: Tickets Now On Sale!

Are you ready to get equipped to make ideas happen? Tickets are now on sale for the 2014 99U Conference in New York City.

Tickets are now on sale for the 99U Conference 2014! The official dates are May 1-2, 2014 at Lincoln Center in New York City. You can register here.
The mission of the conference, as always, will be to shift focus from idea generation to idea execution. To accomplish that, we’re assembling an incredible group of visionary creatives, entrepreneurs, and researchers to pull back the curtain on their creative processes and share road-tested insights on how to make ideas happen.

The program for the 2014 99U Conference will be a full 2+ day experience, including:

  • A series of incredible main stage talks that demystify the creative process and offer real-world insight on how to put your ideas into action.
  • A multi-track block of interactive master classes that provide an intensive initiation into the best practices of making ideas happen.
  • A brand-new opening night reception on April 30th with interactive workshops, skill-building booths, and early registration.
  • Optional off-site studio sessions that will give you a behind-the-scenes look at leading creative companies in New York City.
  • A complimentary networking cocktail reception on May 1st + an absolutely killer, open-bar afterparty at one of NYC’s premier cultural institutions on May 2nd.
  • The best-designed schwag bag you have ever received, packed with incredibly cool (and useful!) stuff.
  • Amazing giveaways, art exhibitions, and other awesome surprises.
We won’t be announcing our speaker roster until early 2014 when the lineup is complete, but we can tell you that we’re brewing up something truly special. You can expect a lineup of the most productive creative visionaries from across industries, as well as leading researchers of the craft of creativity.

Past speakers have included Stefan Sagmeister, Jack Dorsey, Paula Scher, John Maeda, Baratunde Thurston, Brene Brown, Fred Wilson, Jonathan Adler, Gretchen Rubin, Jad Abumrad, and many more. To get a sense of who we curate, you can view all of our past speakers here.

Please note that tickets always sell out far in advance of the event, with a waiting list of thousands, so we recommend purchasing your tickets early if you’d like to attend.
