Comments Off on 22nd – 26th May: DigitalTech Mission to New York & Chicago.

DigitalTech Trade Mission to New York & Chicago.

We’re returning to New York this May taking a group of DigitalTech companies to meet other high growth, scale-up businesses, agencies, financial services companies, investors, and accelerators in Manhattan and Chicago. We’re also running two Like Minds Live! events in New York.

Tickets to the New York networking reception will open in April. The event starts at 6.30pm. 

Tickets to the to “The Future of RetailTech and FinTech” panel debate will open in April. Moderated by Claire Walsh, Design Strategist at Stylus Innovation + Advisory. Additional panelists will be announced shortly. The events starts at 18.30.

We had over 350 people registered last year so be quick as we have limited space available. UK companies registered for the mission do not need to register separately for the reception or panel debates.

Travel Arrangements.

We’re flying out on Sunday May 21st.

All delegates are responsible for the cost of their own flights and accommodation. We have negotiated favourable rates with our travel partners for Like Minds Mission attendees. While you’re not obliged to travel at the same time and stay in the same hotel, we’ve found it’s more fun for all involved if you do! If you have any questions or require further information please email us here.

Please note you will need an ESTA visa to gain entry to the US, you can apply for one here. Please ensure you have been approved for entry to the US before booking your travel arrangements.

You can also apply for the Global Entry Programme here. This provides a fast track entry to the US if you are a UK citizen.


Our schedule is outlined below. Once you apply to join the mission we will ask each company to identify who they would like to meet on a bespoke one-to-one basis while we are in New York. The specific US companies you you have asked to meet with will be identified in your registration confirmation email.
