Where and When?

GraphConnect is coming to New York City on October 23 and 24.


From facilitating cutting-edge cancer research, to helping send humans to Mars, to enabling the next generation of business applications that require highly scalable, real-time queries of data relationships, graphs are changing the way we innovate. GraphConnect is the premier conference to hear and share these stories of innovation.

Who attends?

Attend GraphConnect and you’ll have the opportunity to mix and mingle with hundreds of developers, software engineers, data scientists and IT Executives with one thing in common: the desire to disrupt their industry.

The event is centered around the Neo4j Graph Database, which has a community of tens of thousands of developers around the world, 500-member startup program, and hundreds of customers among the Global 1000.


GraphConnect is a two-day conference, with one full day devoted to training classes covering both beginning and advanced topics. The second day is keynotes, 45-minute technical and business sessions, 15-minute lightning talks, an expo hall, GraphClinics to get one-on-one help from Neo4j engineers and more. We have a number of events that take place around the conference, including a GraphHack hackathon (with plenty of swag and prizes!), social party for mingling, as well as an ecosystem and partner summit.
