Through interviews, panels, debates, displays, and break-out sessions, they showcase the trends, innovations, and technologies driving the business, political, and cultural landscape.

NY Ideas focuses on “The Innovators,” convening leaders and agents of change in business, finance, technology, the sciences, and the arts for stimulating conversations, interactive displays, and break out sessions on the trends and technologies set to change New York...and from there, the world.
