Announced Dec. 6, 2016 by Armin
From previous mentions here and on Twitter/Instagram you might have been aware that the 2017 Brand New Conference was planned to take place in New York but due to previously unscheduled construction at the New York venue we were forced to look for another one. Unfortunately, New York is so difficult to find a venue that matches our needs, budget, and preferred dates that, with all the pros and cons taken into account, it was better to change cities altogether. Apologies to those that were counting on BNConf coming back to New York — we were looking forward to it as well.
So… The 2017 Brand New Conference will be in Chicago, NOT in New York. The dates remain the same, September 14 - 15, 2017. We will be back at the crisp Harris Theater in Millennium Park.
Pre-sale tickets are available now through late April when prices go up by $100. If you have some budget left from 2016, this is a good time to avoid giving that money to the IRS.
The first round of speaker invitations have gone out and if all goes as planned, 2017’s BNConf will be excitingly eccentric-ish.
