All day today, Friday 29, and into the deep hours of the night you can still purchase tickets for the Brand New Conference at the early-bird rate. Prices go up on Saturday. There are already 205 attendees out of 479 available seats; we do expect it to sell out so don’t wait too long. From looking at the attendee list it seems the conference is going to be as much fun on stage as it will be off stage with folks coming in from far-flung countries like Germany, Peru, Hong Kong, and Israel and our neighbors from Mexico and Canada as well as people from fun companies like Gawker, ESPN, Funny or Die, and Google. To end my pitch I also want to mention that I had the chance of seeing our end-of-day speaker Aaron Draplin present at the HOW Live Conference in Boston this past weekend and he was amazing: funny, ranty, and passionate, with great identity work (and stories) to boot. He follows in the footsteps of great BNConf closing speakers Erik Spiekermann and Matteo Bologna, and I can guarantee he won’t disappoint. Hope to see many of you in September.
Plans are in development for coming back to Europe in Spring of 2018 with the current top contender host city of Barcelona.
