The speaker line-up for this year’s 99U conference—which we helped co-found with Behance in 2009—was announced earlier today. The conference, set to be held on 2-3 May 2013, will feature talks by Airbnb co-founder Joe Gebbia, TaskRabbit founder Leah Busque, Hosain Rahman of Jawbone and returning speaker Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere, as well as other notable creative professionals like author AJ Jacobs of “Drop Dead Healthy” and Josh Reich, founder of Simple.
We look forward to hearing from the speakers at the conference’s new, expanded location at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, where the audience will have an opportunity to engage in intimate conversations with each presenter and participate in creative workshops. Following tradition, Cool Hunting will be premiering a series of exciting new videos on leaders—some well-known, others relatively undiscovered—in creativity and innovation as a part of conference.
Tickets have sold quickly, and there are only a few spots left for the 2013 conference. You can go to the 99U website in order to purchase tickets while they last, and also to check out the entire list of speakers for 2013. We hope to see you there in May.
