The Brooklyn Futurist Meetup is where we discuss what the world might look like in ten years or more. Speakers explore trends with transformative potential... or ones that are just simply fascinating.
Our events usually run in Brooklyn where most members work or live. Topics are not Brooklyn-focused. They are open to attendees and speakers from anywhere. This is America's largest future-focused meetup with 3,400+ members and the second largest globally.
We meet 4-6 times per year with presentations by guest speakers, followed by spirited, respectful discussion. We encourage you to mingle with fellow attendees before and afterwards. Review our member profiles - you'll find an amazing array of entrepreneurs, contrarians, tech visionaries, big thinkers, creative types and more.
Our topics are unlimited. Past events looked at music, chocolate, now futurism, women in innovation, sustainability, space commercialization, the Lowline, the Ocean, web privacy, 3D Printing and media. We're planning more exciting programs in culture, science, technology, education, entertainment, commerce and societal relations. Your suggestions for topics, speakers, event formats, partners, perks and sponsors are welcome.

Please don't post it without getting our written permission first or we'll remove it. If it is something worth emailing our members, please contact organizer well in advance (at least 2 weeks out), so we can coordinate with our other member emails. If you are promoting a clearly commercial enterprise, we'll generally request a discount code for our members and a free admission for one or two - or sponsorship of our meetup. We often co-promote, co-produce events with other meetups and show them the courtesy of getting explicit permission beforehand. Appreciate you doing the same for us.
