Mondo.NYC 2021

While the vast majority of Mondo.NYC conference and showcase programming will be presented virtually via zoom, with your safety as our top priority, we couldn’t be happier to announce that Mondo will host very limited elements of our business conference -- including panels, networking opportunities, and live artist showcases -- LIVE IN PERSON at our partner venues in New York City. The Mondo 2021 IRL conference HQ will be at Drom at 85 Avenue A in Manhattan's East Village and, in addition to Drom, we are proud to host LIVE showcase performances at The Knitting Factory in Williamsburg and Manhattan's Bowery Electric and Berlin Under A.


All Mondo in-person events will strictly comply with New York City, New York State and federal guidelines, most specifically required proof of full COVID-19 vaccination with corresponding identification upon entry.  A negative COVID test shall not grant entry. There shall be no exceptions to this requirement.  Additionally, indoor face coverings are strongly encouraged. 

All Mondo IN-PERSON conference content will be made available via zoom.

Mondo is all about community and connection -- we hope to see many of you in real life, to listen, learn and connect. If you're unable to make it to NYC, Mondo 2021 will simultaneously be presented virtually as a global interactive meeting and livestream.

Mondo's conference content will consist of:

• panels featuring over 200 leading music, arts,

   media and tech executives and entrepreneurs

• round table discussions and workshops

• private one-on-ones

• networking

• meetups and happy hours

Our 2021 showcase festival will feature performances from breakthrough artists from around the world streamed via multiple Mondo channels live IRL from NYC and online worldwide.
