I saw this opportunity. It looks fun but it also seems expensive.

I would personally rather save that $$ and get to know people from my admitted students class (via Facebook, Google Groups ... whatever platform your school prefers). If you want to get to know people in your area who are also going to business school, again check Facebook or even MeetUp for your options (sometimes events float around) or you could arrange a GC meet up if you're inclined to meet random people from the Internet.

This is a truly unique event. The person who replied here is misinformed. The primary purpose of the event is to help MBA admits get the best possible ROI from the program they are about the enter. Admits who come to NYC for this festival will be able to go to the offices of world class companies and hear from senior executives and partners on what it's like for MBAs to work in those organizations. You'll get the chance to make highly valuable connections with these companies in an ideal environment that is not like the cattle call on campus. And the firms agreeing to present to and meet with admits is absolutely first rate: McKinsey, Bain, BCG, Deloitte, Accenture Strategy, PwC, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Citi, Bank of America, Amazon, LinkedIn, PepsiCo, Aneuuser-Busch InBev, Pfizer, the SEC, CommonBond and more. If you're interested in using the MBA experience as an incubator for an entrepreneurial venture, there's also a startup track to meet with recently graduated MBAs who have started companies in New York.

It's a unique opportunity to get on the radar earlier than ever before with key people in these companies. Our opening reception will be at NYU's Stern School where a panel of execs will talk about MBA career tracks in their industries, a well-known and highly popular MBA career coach will present as will a stand-up comic. The closing meet-up will be held on the 50th floor of JP Morgan's headquarters building in NYC, giving everyone the chance for one-on-one sessions with executives and partners. Lunch is included in the price and several of our host companies will be sponsoring luncheons for guests.

Among the speakers will be McKinsey's Yael Taqqu, a partner and director in the firm's New York office who consults in digital media and marketing, as well as product strategy, conceptualization, and commercialization, and J.P. Morgan's Jennifer Nason, global chairman of investment banking.

At $250, with two evening receptions and cocktail parties, lunch, and direct and immediate access to key players in MBA hiring along with members of the Class of 2018 at a wide variety of the very best schools, this is the biggest bargain you will find of your MBA experience.

Bumping this as I'm considering the festival for 2017...

Has anyone attended that can provide a review? Is it worth the time and money? There are a few other pre-MBA conferences/events that I'm looking at - this one being the most expensive.

I can't really answer your question with facts but my view is that it is worth it.

I'll be attending this spring, flying from London!

Yes, please, if somebody on this forum has attended this even last year do share your experience.

Based on what they put on their page on Poets&Quants it looks like it was a great event. But I'm confused why there's little information about this year's planned events for this festival.

And what do you think about other events? for example, JumpStart - is it worth money and time?
