In conjunction with the November issue, “The New Philly: The Innovation Issue,” Philadelphia Magazine is throwing the city’s first-ever Thinkfest, a two-day celebration of Philadelphia’s bright future and the people who are leading us there.
The event will take place at the Rittenhouse Hotel right on Rittenhouse Square this Friday and Saturday, November 30-December 1.
Friday night is a VIP reception honoring those featured in the magazine’s innovation package, with the evening’s marquee event a one-on-one Q&A with Stephen Starr, and tickets for that are only available as a Friday-Saturday combo ($85 together).
But Saturday is the main attraction (tickets for just Saturday are $50), with six hours’ worth of workshops, sessions and interactive talks spotlighting Philadelphia’s boldest thinkers.
Hear about the latest developments in Philadelphia’s technology, arts, food, medicine, economics, urban development and much more. For a full list of speakers, click here.
Tickets are available online.
