NewCo represents a radical departure from the traditional conference format. Rather than learning in a conventional setting, festival attendees visit companies of their choice throughout the city. They learn about the companies first-hand from leaders and CEOs, right inside the offices. Apply to host in 2018.
Learn how to reach 2,000+ host companies, tens of thousands of festival attendees, hundreds of thousands of engaged readers, and a select group of affiliate and corporate partners that underpin the NewCo ecosystem. Join us on our mission to change the way business gets done.
