Location

The third DesignOps Summit took place in Brooklyn in late October—lovely, crisp fall days in New York City.

We convened for the main conference (October 23-24) at the brand new auditorium in CityTech’s New Academic Complex in Downtown Brooklyn, accessible to Manhattan via subway or taxi, and walkable from the Brooklyn or Manhattan Bridge.
