The central hub of the festival is the IWNY HQ at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 W. 18th St.) in the heart of Silicon Alley. The HQ will bring together 10,000 attendees for four days of celebrity keynotes and lively panel discussions on two live-streamed stages, workshops and tutorials in the official IWNY classroom, dozens of interactive displays, a screening room (new for this year), media center, a café and a lounge. There will be deeper dive, co-located conferences — literally upstairs and next door — on areas such as healthcare & technology. The IWNY HQ is open from Monday, May 20-Thursday, May 23.
