From the organizers:
"The fourth-annual Fast Company Innovation Festival is taking place across New York City from October 22-26, featuring more than 150 dynamic events covering everything innovation – from tech to design, leadership to creativity, fashion to healthcare, and more.
This immersive, live-storytelling event features keynotes, workshops, and conversations at the 92nd Street Y and Convene at 237 Park Ave plus 100 Fast Tracks, intimate sessions happening at the most innovative organizations throughout the city."
They promise 100 tracks and 10,000 attendees including "Elite leaders from around the world with a passion for innovation and creativity gather to uncover the future of business and culture together: C-Level executives, entrepreneurs, senior management, top-level decision makers, and business professionals."
These ticket prices end 30 July 2018, increase after that:
- All-Access Pass 2-for-1 $1499, or $899 for one
- Priority Pass $1199
- Group Rate (minimum 5) $699
And it looks like they're still accepting speaker applications (but no guidelines I could find) here: https://fastcompany.swoogo.com/speakersubmission18
Sounds like a good event for top-level people with bottom-line responsibility.
