The world’s best designers and design-minded business leaders are gathering this October 2 in New York City for Fast Company's Innovation by Design Conference. We are disrupting the traditional conference format—there will be no multiperson panels moderated by under-prepared moderators. Instead, you'll get a series of highly visual presentations in an intimate setting (82 Mercer St.) leading to a series of offsite Design Experiences and a cocktail party that night. The complete agenda is right here—several of the offsite design tours have already sold out—and we’ve added a completely new panel to the lineup.

Here are five reasons you should get a ticket now.
