Tickets for the 2013 99U Conference (held in New York City 2-3 May 2013) are now on sale.
The conference, formerly known as 99%, is inspired by the famous Thomas Edison quotation “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” As always, the focus is on making ideas happen, with a speaker series curated by our friends at Behance. Cool Hunting will be helping put together the program as well as premiering a series of CH Videos during the conference.
This year’s speakers have yet to be decided, but 2012 notables include Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal, designer James Victore, Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere and Fab.com’s Jason Goldberg. A change of venue to Alice Tully Hall at New York’s Lincoln Center marks an expansion for the conference, though the focus will still be on intimate conversations with inspirational figures.
Tickets have sold out quickly in the past, so we encourage those who wish to attend to buy early. As this is the fifth year, expect big things and even bigger ideas.
