The Fast Company Innovation Festival

October 23-27, 2017 / New York City

2017 Theme: Leading With Optimism

The third annual Fast Company Innovation Festival promises to be our most ambitious and energizing event ever. Taking place across New York City, the festival will feature more than 150 dynamic events in content tracks ranging from tech to design, leadership to creativity, fashion to healthcare, and more. You’ll be inspired to break out of your comfort zone and make meaningful (often unexpected) connections with like-minded attendees.

Whether you head to one of the more than 125 intimate Fast Tracks inside companies all over the city, attend a star-studded keynote, participate in a hands-on workshop, or join a Purposeful Networking session, you will leave with the tools to effect positive change in your career—and your industry.
