This November, The Next Web Conference in New York will attract 1,500 attendees from a huge range of industries.

While the startups in attendance may be looking for investment or exposure, and the corporates may be hunting for innovation or partnerships, all of our audience are also bound together by a shared goal: everyone is looking for great ideas and tools for triggering explosive growth.

Our diverse range of speakers will be covering an equally diverse range of topics, but similarly, a common thread amongst many is the massive growth they’ve already managed to engineer.
