The Eleventh HOPE will be held July 22-24, 2016 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in midtown Manhattan, New York City.
Pick up your registration badge in the Penn Plaza Pavilion, which is directly to the left after walking into Hotel Pennsylvania from Seventh Avenue.
The Eleventh HOPE events take place over four floors in the hotel. On the first and second floor you will find registration, hackerspaces, vendors, art, music, hardware villages, Segway rides, speaker overflow, and more! The sixth floor has various workshops and presentations. The 18th floor is where you’ll find all four speaker tracks, movies, and the 2600 Store.

The Hotel Pennsylvania is located at 401 Seventh Avenue in New York City, right across the street from Penn Station and a couple of blocks away from the Empire State Building. The hotel has stood since 1919 with a record 2200 rooms and has booked over 27 million guests since then, more than any hotel on the planet. It’s the home of the most famous telephone number in the world: Pennsylvania 6-5000.
While the hotel had been targeted for demolition back in 2008, Vornado Realty Trust (its owners) had a change of heart and major renovations are now in the works instead. We want to thank the many HOPE attendees who spoke up to save this historic landmark, which has been our home since 1994.
The Hackers On Planet Earth conference is one of the biggest events to be held at the hotel. (Every conference except 1997’s Beyond HOPE has taken place there.) Every two years, our crew transforms the place into a high tech center and hackers from all over the world roam the many hallways and floors. For those new to all of this, it’s a great way to experience New York for the first time.
