What you'll get with your 99U Conference ticket:
Get inspiration from leaders in design, business, and beyond: Learn from the world’s top thinkers and do-ers in a series of never-before-seen main stage talks. 99U speakers offer pragmatic, real-world insights that transcend creative sectors. Past speakers have included Paola Antonelli (MoMA), Stewart Butterfield (Slack), Tina Roth Eisenberg (Tattly, CreativeMornings), Neil Blumenthal (Warby Parker), Jack Dorsey (Twitter, Square), Mark Ecko (Ecko Enterprises), Jonathan Adler, and many more.
Sharpen your skills in interactive sessions: Expert-hosted workshops give you a chance to pick up career skills and dive into new disciplines. Past partners have included Shinola, Shake Shack, MoMA, and more.
Visit leading creative workspaces: We’ll explore some of NYC's most innovative companies at breakout sessions across the city. Past partners have included Spotify, IDEO, Mother, and more.
Network with 1,000 fellow creatives: 99U provides you with endless opportunities to meet other attendees and get exposed to new ideas across the conference.
Unwind in true 99U style: from our pre-conference kickoff packed to the gills with hands-on demos and games to our killer closing party at MoMA featuring a surprise DJ set (previous performers include Questlove and Arcade Fire's Win Butler), no conference parties like 99U.
Experience surprises around every corner: incredible giveaways, our much-coveted swag bag, art exhibitions, and other delights await you throughout the conference. We put a ton of work into creating a beautiful experience for you.
