Speakers are curated by our team, but we occasionally accept outside submissions. All 99U talks are original: we do not accept submissions of talks that have already been given at other events.
Speaker suggestions can be sent to 99UConference@adobe.com with a brief bio, topic idea, links to past talks, and anything else that you think would be helpful for us to know. We review submissions on a rolling basis and finalize our lineup by January of each year.
Due to the volume of emails we receive, we cannot respond to all submissions.
99U partners with like-minded creative organizations in a variety of ways, including Studio Sessions and interactive installations. All of our partnerships are custom-built and created to enhance the attendee experience.
If you're interested in learning more, please contact our team at 99UConference@adobe.com.
Attendee badges are available on a first-come, first-served basis as soon as they go on sale. We recommend that you purchase your ticket immediately, as we are unable to hold or reserve one for you once they are all gone.
We endeavor to keep badge prices as low as possible for all attendees (and much lower than the price of other multiday creativity conferences), so we do not do not offer special discounts beyond earlybird pricing, which is available only to returning attendees.
All cancellations are subject to a $150 cancellation fee for each ticket until March 2, 2018. To request a cancellation, please email our team at 99UConference@adobe.com.
After that date, we cannot accommodate cancellations and no refunds or exceptions will be made. If you're unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances, we welcome you to transfer your ticket to a colleague or friend, which you can do at no fee until April 13, 2018.
You can transfer your ticket to another individual free of charge until April 13, 2018 by reaching out to 99UConference@adobe.com. After April 13, each ticket transfer will be subjected to a fee of $99. Please note that:
- Transfer requests MUST be sent by the original purchaser of the badge, or the person whose name under which the badge was registered.
- Transfer requests MUST include the original order confirmation.
- 99U cannot find a transferee for you, nor handle any exchange of funds.
- Shared registrations (such as splitting days between two people for one ticket) are not permitted.
- No transfers are permitted once the conference has begun on May 9, 2018.
Want to become a part of 99U on the ground? Each year, we welcome friendly, fantastic volunteers to help us make the conference happen. Let’s be clear: this is not just a way to get a free ticket; you’ll be working hard! But you'll also be learning how a top-of-the-line creative event comes together, and have the opportunity to be a part of our incredible production team.
Volunteer applications will open in Fall 2018.
Yes! If you'd like to meet or chat with some of the people attending the 99U Conference, you can join our 2018 99U Conference Slack group. Instructions on accessing the Slack group will be provided with your badge order confirmation. Joining the group is completely optional, and not every 99U Conference attendee will be present in this group.
The Ace Hotel New York is our official hospitality partner for the 99U Conference. A preferred rate is available to attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. Details can be found in your order confirmation.
Due to the limited size of occupancy allowed by our afterparty's fire code restrictions, we are unable to offer guest tickets to any 99U evening events. We like to think we have the friendliest audience out there, so don't be shy: you might meet your next client or collaborator at a 99U party!
Due to the scope of the conference, we are unable to offer language translation services.
We have, however, provided an ASL translator for 99U main stage talks in previous years when specifically requested by hearing-impaired attendees. If you are planning to purchase a badge and would like to request this service, please reach out to our team at 99UConference@adobe.com.
