About Internet Week:
Founded in 2008 by the team that produces The Webby Awards, Internet Week was born organically through a partnership with the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment. In 2008, the Mayor's Office approached The Webby team to create a festival celebrating not only the booming digital industry in New York City, but the notion of openness embraced by the Internet.
Now in its fourth year, Internet Week began its first year with about 60 events, and worked with more than 80 Event Partners in its second year. The third year of Internet Week saw the addition of a Head Quarters at Metropolitan Pavilion, had almost 300 events, and almost 20,000 City Wide Attendees. Speakers and attendees have included everyone from Ed Norton and Jimmy Fallon, to Tim Armstrong, Nick Kristof, Senator Chuck Schumer and Arianna Huffington.
The fourth year of Internet Week is projected to make the festival one of the largest digital celebrations in the world. Culminating with The Webby Awards on June 13, Internet Week NY is excited to have upwards of 300 events. Expanding the HQ from 30,000 square feet to nearly 60,000, Internet Week is poised to lead the world in cultivating and enhancing digital and Internet culture.
