Seasons of Change: A New Mayor, A New SMW NYC Vision & Home

The city has a new mayor, creating a new beginning and shift in the air. And here at SMW NYC, together with the city, we embrace this change. We celebrate change. This February, we’re bringing a new vision; a renewed passion.

This is our sixth year of SMW NYC, and we’re bringing you a totally new experience.

A New Home: Official Campus

We want your SMW14 experience, to be more social, more interactive, and more productive than you ever thought possible. Powered for a third year by our long time partners Nokia, we’ve moved all official programming to our Official Campus venue at Highline Stages to give you a more unified and cohesive experience.

A Unifying Theme: The Future of Now

SMW is where we make progress in terms of how technology and humanity come together. This February we will look at this through our theme The Future of Now, which will explore our always on, always connected world. Driving the conversation will be our keynote speakers, which this year include:

+ Steve Case – Revolution, founder of Case Foundation, and founder & former CEO of AOL
+ Robin Chase – co-founder of Zipcar and CEO of BuzzCar

Both Steve and Robin have built and sold hugely successful businesses, and both continue to drive change in their respective fields. In addition to these pioneers in business, you will also hear from:

+ Nancy Lublin – DoSomething.org
+ Doug Rushkoff – Author of Present Shock
+ Eli Pariser – UpWorthy
+ Scott Heiferman – Meetup
+ Cindy Gallop – MakeLoveNotPorn.tv
+ Soraya Darabi – Zady

We will be making many more speaker announcements over the coming weeks, but for now we have a really exciting offer to get in early! All events at Campus will require a pass, and today we are announcing an incredible offer, just for you, our existing community.
