Why The
City Edition

A new format continued the spirit of our four-day flagship event on Necker Island with the bustling energy of New York for a relaxed, off-the-record gathering. Designed as a single-day event - we were once again looking to mix the business crowd with creators and curators, expand the horizons, enrich the conversations and really move the needle. And New York clearly set the stage for a completely different experience.

Where Did It Take Place

New York. Manhattan's Tribeca, home to  approximately 17,000 residents, is a neighborhood of cobblestone streets, world-famous restaurants, and historic warehouse buildings that have been converted to some of the most desired lofts in the city. The 10013 zip code features one of Manhattan's most charming neighborhoods.
