Yes AND Yes Yes

A gathering of...

  • thinkers/futurists/nerds/weirdos
  • voracious consumers of and generators of ideas and information
  • creatives that like to engage in conversation about their creative pursuits & the concepts behind them
  • people comfortable with & excited about their own obsessive interest in their odd corner of the world
  • people on the path to self-actualization, self-awareness and all the goodies that lie therein

We changed our name! 

Read more about it on our blog.

Following the popular improv mantra "Yes, And..." and honoring the creative brilliance brought to Palm Springs by each and every attendee last year, we have changed our name to Yes AND Yes Yes.

#YxYY = multiplying the YES!

Our Story


The theory was, if you get a group of smart, engaged individuals together in the right place that great things would happen.

Our Story


The theory was, if you get a group of smart, engaged individuals together in the right place that great things would happen.

Calling all geeks, nerds, weirdos, creatives, futurists, thinkers, yay-sayers! You are being invited to say YES!

 

Our concept was born from a conversation on the patio of the Hotel San Jose in Austin one rainy spring night several years ago.

The theory was, if you get a group of smart, engaged individuals together in the right place that, even in the absence of an organized conference, great things would happen.

YxYY001 was created in the moment, and surpassed all expectations. Come play with us again in the desert!
