    TNW Conference in New York is a mere five weeks away, but history shows that the time to decide if you’re coming is now. Why? This week has always been our busiest for ticket sales, and 2015 is no exception. Tonight, ticket prices will rise – meaning you have just a few hours left to pick up your pass for $369.

    Here’s why more than 1,000 people have already got their tickets:

    The Attendees

    This year’s conference will play host to 1,500 interesting, forward-thinking attendees. We may provide the setting, speakers and source the startups, but it’s the thought-provoking conversations and partnerships you strike on our business floor that truly makes TNW Conference so exciting.

    Check out a selection of the attendees you can meet at this year’s event here.

    For now, you can explore attendees, investors and startups, and we’ll be adding press next week.

    The Startups

    We’ve now confirmed 100 young, hungry startups for our business floor. This is no alleyway experience, we try to provide a space where our startups can secure genuine exposure, meet investors and press – and where you can build game-changing partnerships and learn how to stay ahead of the innovation curve. The likes of Waze, Rapportive and Prezi have either launched at or taken part in our previous startup rallies.

    The Setting

    Last year we hosted 50 startups and 750 attendees. This year’s we’ve doubled up on both, which means we needed a new venue to support our ambitions.

    We’re thrilled to announce that on November 18th we’ll be travelling to the Manhattan Center, one of New York’s most elegant and versatile event destinations – pairing a century-old former opera house with fully integrated 21st century media and entertainment production technology.
