Questions asked about HalfStack NYC.

Where is HalfStack NYC?

HalfStack NYC is being hosted by American Express in their event space near the World Trade Center, with beautiful views towards the Statue of Liberty!

Where should I stay?

If you are not local to NYC, we recommend staying in the financial district near the World Trade Center.

Does HalfStack include paid vendor pitches?

No, never. Occasionally a company that has a talk accepted also chooses to sponsor HalfStack, but we have a strict policy decoupling sponsorships from speakers.

Do you sell my contact information to sponsors or send annoying emails?

Never. We will send you a few emails with information about the event, and one email after the event with follow-up information. Beyond that, if you want to hear from us again, you may opt-in to our monthly HalfStack newsletter.

Why does HalfStack cost what it does?

HalfStack delivers an authentic, high-quality experience and provide meals and drinks and have speakers traveling from out of the area. Because we do not compromise on attendee experience, we don't accept some sponsorship offers that ask for things that degrade the attendee experience. We want to make HalfStack inclusive for everyone that wants to attend (until we run out of seats). If you cannot afford our ticket prices and want to attend, we have opportunities for volunteers, students, diversity, and other discounts. Contact us and tell us how we can make sure you can attend HalfStack!
