NewCO: Now’s the Time to Get In to Get Out (and We’ve Got the Tickets!) | GO.CO Blog

Have you ever attended a conference with high hopes, only to be disappointed by sitting in an uncomfortable chair in a stuffy ballroom while listening to the same old PowerPoint presentations?

Well, NewCo is on a mission to turn the idea of tech conferences on its head, by encouraging attendees to “get out to get in”.

NewCo conferences have the focus of a business/tech conference, the vibe of a music festival, and the model of an artist open studio. The passion project of six-time media and tech entrepreneur John Battelle, NewCo takes participants out of dull ballrooms and directly into the businesses changing the face of the modern working city.

Across 16+ diverse cities including Istanbul, San Francisco, and Mexico City, NewCo connects innovative businesses with tens of thousands of engaged festival goers. At NewCo, the city is the conference venue—not a boring ballroom.

NewCo returns to San Francisco for the fourth time adding Oakland to its lineup for its biggest festival ever on October 6-8, 2015. You’ll be able to get inside Airbnb, Twitter, Blue Bottle and 200 more at NewCo San Francisco & Oakland.

During the festival these companies will be opening their doors for intimate one-hour experiences. You’ll be treated to behind-the-scenes tours of cutting-edge work environments, learn from the cities’ best entrepreneurs and get a peek into new product developments and innovations.
