The City Edition, April 19th at 2 pm

An invite-only, immersive experience that brings together a select group of influential leaders at the intersection of creativity, media, and technology. VIEWS The City Edition continues the spirit of our flagship 2017 event on Sir Richard Branson's Necker Island with the bustling energy of New York for a relaxed, off-the-record day of meaningful connections and thought-provoking ideas.

Some of the industry's most prominent executives will delve into the ever-evolving role of creativity in a digital world. Exploring how human ingenuity will interface with artificial intelligence - how the human body, the communication, the cities and brands none-the-less will change. 

The Venue 

Spring Place on 6 St Johns Lane  is a state-of-the-art collaborative space and private-members club in TriBeCa where inspiring minds in fashion, art, business, and entertainment come to work, host and create. Sharing the remarkable TriBeCa building with its sister organization, Spring Studios visitors are immersed in a cultural hub that includes the Tribeca Film Festival, Independent Art Fair, New York Fashion Week, and now VIEWS. 

At Spring, there are the workings of culture at every turn which makes it the perfect setting for our first instalment of The City Edition
