Fast Company Innovation Festival Brings Big Names, Big Ideas to Brookfield Place

What do Judd Apatow, Jamie Lee Curtis, TikTok star Brittany Broski and the CEO of Marriott have in common? They’re all set to be speakers at the Fast Company Innovation Festival, taking place at Convene in Brookfield Place (225 Liberty Street), September 19–22. 

The festival is back in person this year and is set to gather thousands of makers and innovators for four days of conversation, networking and idea sharing. Across several stages, the festival will tackle a wide array of topics, from the change-making of LeBron James’s story and improvisation tips directly from Wayne Brady, to questions about supply chains and how to use virtual reality to fight climate change. 

Other notable speakers include Tracy Sherrod, vice president and executive editor of Little, Brown Publishers; Beyond Meat founder and CEO Ethan Brown; comedian Billy Eichner; Amazon labor activist Christian Smalls and MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle.
