Join the entire New York City startup and innovation community in McCarren Park for the NExT Expo, Brooklyn’s only totally free, ticketed Expo showcasing some of the most exciting companies and startups around. The NExT Expo will take place on Thursday, June 13 and Friday, June 14 at McCarren Park (Bedford and N. 12th, right next to the tennis courts), and we mentioned it’s free, right? That means no admission fee and no Northside Festival badge required. Click here to RSVP for free.
And yes, the NExT trade show is free, but here’s why you should consider buying a NExT Conference badge. From June 13-14, the Northside Festival will also host a set of panels, fireside chats and mentoring sessions at venues a stone’s throw from McCarren Park. These NExT Conference events are only open to Northside Festival NExT and Premium badge holders. We’ve tapped some of the biggest and most exciting names in technology and innovation to speak at this year’s NExT Conference (June 13-14). NExT is proud to host Chris Poole, the founder of 4chan; Scott Belsky, the founder and CEO of Behance; Charles Adler, the co-founder of Kickstarter; and Ben Lerer, the co-founder and CEO of Thrillist. Plus, we’ve also got Liz Crawford, the CTO of Birchbox; Ben Kauffman, founder of Quirky; David Yassky, Taxi and Limousine Commissioner; and Travis Kalanick, the founder of Uber. We’ll be engaging these innovators (and many more) in discussions and panels at the Wythe Hotel and Brooklyn Brewery. Plus, this year’s NExT Conference will be hosting plenty of open bars and networking opportunities.
