We’re kicking off Techweek New York the right way with a premiere screening of The Fifth Estate. VIP and conference pass holders as well as LAUNCH competitors are invited to see the film, based on the events surrounding the news-leaking website WikiLeaks, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange.
How best to cap off a great day of speakers, startups and networking with the who’s who of the New York tech community? By heading to the Techweek Fashion Show, that’s how.
The runway show is one of a kind – an experience that celebrates the innovation that happens at the intersection of fashion and technology. It’s a full-scale fashion show, and attendees will enjoy a peek at the season’s hottest fashions.
The show was a huge hit at Techweek Chicago 2013. Head over to our Facebook photo gallery to get a glimpse of what you can expect from the show in New York on Oct. 17.
Also be sure to check out our FashionTECH Summit, featuring incredible speakers like Jon Czaja (CIO, Bonobos), Aliza Licht (SVP Global Communications, DKNY) and Shauna Mei (CEO, AhaLife).

Techweek received some great feedback following the 2012 conference. After gathering all your helpful input, we’ve developed the new concept of Techweek Summits.
These 8 summits are a more targeted way to meet the right people, absorb the ideas you came to hear, and learn about the new companies that interest you most. Summits consist of speaker sessions, expo exhibits, and social gatherings centered around specific topics and industries.
