Internet Week New York
Tech May 20, 2013
Since 2008, Internet Week has taken place all over the city, thanks to our many partners hosting diverse events in different locations.The result is a critical mass of web-focused events that raises the profile of NYC's industry as a whole, as well as the partners who participate.
The Festival Headquarters
Just like in 2010 and 2011, Internet Week NY HQ will be home to stages, classrooms, lounges, installations, and more. With 20,000 more square feet of Digital Playground as well as Conference Theater—Internet Week HQ at 82 Mercer is poised to be the best yet.
Open from May 14-17, attendees can expect to be a part of the ever-changing digital landscape in New York—hearing from industry luminaries and innovators across two stages and two classrooms on the second floor of 82 Mercer. On the first floor, Internet Week NY will host large-scale ticketed conferences.
With almost 200 City Wide events in 2011, we're excited for all of the parties, meet-ups, executive breakfasts, conferences, and networking events that 2012 will bring. This crowd-sourced participation in Internet Week NY is the foundation of the festival, and we value each event as an Official Event Partner of Internet Week NY.
In 2008 along with The Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment (formerly The Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre, and Broadcasting), Internet Week began as a City Wide festival celebrating the openness of the worldwide web and the digital community in New York. In 2008 and 2009 Internet Week was a foundation of events throughout New York City, before the addition of a central headquarters in 2010.
In the centralized HQ in 2010 and 2011, Chelsea's Metropolitan Pavilion hosted large-scale installations from companies like Yahoo!, AOL, Google, and Ford in addition to galleries like Can You Draw the Internet, as well as stages, classrooms and a conference theater. With speakers and keynotes ranging from Senator Chuck Schumer, the NY Times' Nick Kristof, CEO of MLB Advanced Media Bob Bowman and Guggenheim Curator Joan Young.
