TechCrunch went big in 2011 and turned a huge 133,000 square-foot working pier in New York City into a unique conference venue for the startup community. After a year of experience and thoughtful planning, we’re heading back to Pier 94 in Midtown Manhattan for NYC Disrupt. And this time, we have an all new floor plan and production acoustics that will make the energy flow and the startups shine. So mark your calendars for the main event, Disrupt NYC, from May 21-23, and get your tickets now. Extra Early bird rates end THIS Friday, March 23!
AND… for all warranty voiders, Occam’s Razor wielders and digital duct tapers out there, we’re excited to announce details for the 3rd annual Disrupt New York Hackathon.
Where: Pier 94 – 755 12th Ave (at 55th St. & 12th Ave), New York, NY 10019
When: May 19-20, 2012
Saturday, May 19th: Doors open at 12:30pm, and the day will begin with workshops by industry leaders on best practices for using APIs. Hacking begins in the evening. You’ll have overnight to divide, conquer and build something awesome from scratch with NYC’s best and brightest.
