A Celebration of the World’s Most Innovative Companies

The Most Innovative Companies Summit and Gala is back to recognize the new class of honorees and celebrate those of the past. We’ll have a morning and afternoon packed full of innovative and inspiring content, all leading up to the creative black-tie gala in the evening!

The event will take place at the beautiful Pavilion at North Javits in Manhattan. Whether you join us for the daytime keynotes and talks or the festive gala—or even better, both—this is the perfect opportunity to toast your team and celebrate with your peers as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies. Ticket packages available here.
