Get inspired as we head to historic Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York.  On June 20th we will enjoy an immersive experience tour, 'cause what's the point of going somewhere if you don't get to SEE it? 

On June 21st, after a stimulating day of engaging panels, INDIEtalks and start-up pitches, we'll revel in an evening of Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails with fellow visionaries in the space.  

In ILC fashion, we keep things real, refreshing and intimate.
