This year, the Mediabistro Circus took over The Times Center in New York City for two days of Extraordinary Impact: Where Media Meets Technology. Hundreds of top-level media professionals came together for education and inspiration. Cirque du Soleil put on an amazing performance from their show Kooza, and the event ended with closing parties on both June 2 and 3.
A special thank you to our event sponsors:
