Now in its 4th year, the Conference at the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway is the highlight of our 11-day festival. This year, join us to explore AI and Creativity as we welcome industry experts to our stage to discuss how Artificial Intelligence is impacting the future of creativity.

Our information flow runs broad, deep, and swift, with lightning talks, panels and keynotes by over 40 industry experts and artists, from world-renowned thought leaders to hidden gems.

We’ll hear from AI thought leaders from companies like Snapchat, Adobe, Intel, and IBM and nearly 40 artists and technologists incorporating emerging technologies into their work in AR, VR, theatre, music and art.

Who Should Attend?

This is a conference for anyone who is professionally interested in the crossroads of technology, design, and the arts, with an emphasis this year on how AI is impacting the creative fields. Whether you are senior management in a creative and digital field, a digital creative seeking inspiration and partnerships, a technologist interested in design or experiences, an entrepreneur, consultant or marketer interested in promoting your company using some of the newest interactive techniques, or just a renaissance polymath, you will find so many things to love at CTW2019!
