So you want attend PRIMER19 but you aren’t sure how you can afford it?

No problem!  There are several different ways you can defray your ticket cost and make it to PRIMER19 this June in New York City!



Get your organization to sponsor your ticket


Sponsoring PRIMER is a great way for companies to recruit top talent, get their brand in front of people from around the world, and to tell the community that they are an innovative organization that cares about the future and is ready to mobilize. Plus, many of our amazing sponsorship opportunities include free tickets!

Email your company’s diversity officer, recruiting manager, or strategic foresight team and introduce them to our sponsorship team who is working to connect with conference partners. If you need an email template to get started, contact and we will reach out with assistance.

If you are a current student or faculty member or employed by a registered non-profit, please contact us for educational & non-profit ticket purchases.


Have your organization buy a group-pack of tickets

If you know other colleagues that are interested in speculative practice and strategic foresight, join together and ask your company to purchase a block of group tickets.

  • Group of 5 - $275/person

  • Group of 10 - $200/person

Hint: Even if your company won’t spring for your ticket, check with friends, colleagues, etc to make your own group to score the discount for all of you!


Have your organization reimburse your ticket for professional development

Email your supervisor and tell them you would like to attend PRIMER19 for professional development reasons.

Check out our “The Value of Attending PRIMER” document for ideas or feel free to send it directly to your boss.
