The third annual Internet Week has finally arrived in New York City with over 150 events scheduled between June 7 -14. The week-long festival will take place at the new Internet Week headquarters at Chelsea’s Metropolitan Pavilion and at many other locations around the city, including the Times Center, NYU and The Knitting Factory. The first-ever Internet Week New York headquarters will showcase technology demos, art exhibits, panel discussions, product launches, lounge spaces and many other activities. The headquarters is hosted by presenting sponsor Yahoo! and official sponsors HP, PepsiCo, Microsoft Expression Studio, IAC, Southwest Airlines and Aquent.
“There is a great sense of excitement, optimism, and energy in the New York community right now and that’s reflected in the line-up for this year’s Internet Week New York,” said David-Michel Davies, chairman, Internet Week New York. “The festival is an amazing opportunity to meet the innovators behind NYC’s industry resurgence, share ideas, and find out where the Internet might be taking us next.”
Internet Week has a wide variety of events planned from educational to celebratory. One of the best celebrations you don’t want to miss is the TechSet party sponsored by PepsiCo on Wednesday, June 9 from 8 – 11 pm at the Social Bar.
Some of my other ‘Hot List’ events include:
- HP News Conference, 6/7 from 9:00 – 11:00 am
- Yahoo! PROVOKE Summit, 6/7 from 3:00 – 6:30 pm
- Mashable Media Summit 2010 in Partnership w/ CNN, 6/8 from 8:30 am – 6:30 pm

I’ve seen this event grow and develop over the last three years. The addition of “HQ” is an awesome development for 2010. I am excited about the future growth opportunity for this crowd sourced “conference” as well as Tech in NY in general.
See you around town!
