In 2008 along with The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (formerly The Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre, and Broadcasting), Internet Week began as a City Wide festival celebrating the openness of the worldwide web and the digital community in New York. In 2008 and 2009 Internet Week was a foundation of events throughout New York City, before the addition of a central headquarters in 2010.
In the centralized HQ in 2010 and 2011, Chelsea’s Metropolitan Pavilion hosted large-scale installations from companies like Yahoo!, AOL, Google, and Ford in addition to galleries like Can You Draw the Internet, as well as stages, classrooms and a conference theater.
With almost 200 City Wide events in 2011, we’re excited for all of the parties, meet-ups, executive breakfasts, conferences, and networking events that 2012 will bring. This crowd-sourced participation in Internet Week NY is the foundation of the festival, and we value each event as an Official Event Partner of Internet Week NY.
