Starting June 7th and ending the 14th, Internet Week New York is about to fill all of our systems with excitement! New York City is about to be invaded by many different types of events, as a part of this festival, to celebrate the thriving internet industry and community of the city.
Apart from giving you guys all the info about this week-long festival, we’d also like to hear what YOU think about Internet Week and what you think would (or could) be a hot topic during the week, for example the #Promise or the Don’t Believe The Hype Day?

The Festival – Internet Week New York (IWNY)
Since 2008, Internet Week has taken place all over the city, thanks to our many partners hosting diverse events in different locations.The result is a critical mass of web-focused events that raises the profile of NYC’s industry as a whole as well as the partners who participate.
We still love crowdsourcing, but now we’re adding something new: a central Internet Week Headquarters.
Located at Metropolitan Pavilion, Internet Week HQ will feature two main areas: Interactive Playground of 12,000 square feet of exposition space. This space will be both a place for attendees to meet, greet, and get a little work done, as well as hosting arts, technology, media and entertainment exhibitions and social events.
The Expo space will be open to the general public during the day Monday June 7 – Thursday June 10. Tickets to the expo space can be purchased online or onsite at the HQ.
The theater space will accommodate up to 450 people for special announcements and presentations.
In 2009 over 100 events, ranging from parties and meetups to executive breakfasts and conferences were hosted throughout NYC thanks to our Official Event Partners. We’re encouraging this kind of crowdsourced participation again in 2010. See the full list of participating Citywide events.
For our part of this fantastic week, please stay tuned for more coverage, news and recaps as the Internet Week progresses. Also, this post by Hotel Chatter might be worth looking at.
