Event Details

/// THE 99% CONFERENCE - 2010
April 15-16, 2010 @ The Times Center, New York City

It’s not about ideas.
It’s about making ideas happen.

Taking its moniker from the famous Thomas Edison quote “Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration,” the 99% Conference represents a shift in focus. Unlike the other conferences that focus purely on ideas and inspiration, the 99% is all about ACTION.

For two days each year, we bring together some of the world's most productive creative visionaries to offer a behind-the-scenes look at their processes as they share road-tested insights on pushing ideas forward.
