Innovation was the name of the game at Philadelphia magazine’s first-ever ThinkFest, held on November 30 and December 1, 2012 at The Rittenhouse Hotel. A keynote conversation with restaurant visionary Stephen Starr kicked off the two-day event. The region’s brightest minds convened for discussions centered around the future of Philadelphia, covering topics such as technology, science, art, and Philly’s food scene. The conversation doesn’t just stop here—keep it going! #ThinkFest. Presented by Philadelphia magazine and Beneficial Bank. Sponsored by Subaru and Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business.
