FAQ
FoST Summit
  • When and where does the 2018 FoST Summit take place?

    The FoST Summit will take place October 3 & 4 at Snug Harbor Cultural Center, located at 1000 Richmond Terrace on Staten Island.

  • How do I get there?

    We provide transportation between Manhattan and Snug Harbor on both days of the Summit. On Wednesday, October 3rd, check-in will take place at the East Coast Memorial in Battery Park, where we will board a private ferry together to begin our journey. On Thursday, October 4th, check-in will take place at the Biergarten at The Standard High Line, and we will take buses over to Snug Harbor together. At the end of both nights, we will provide a bus service to take attendees back to Manhattan. There is also a continuous shuttle running from Snug Harbor to the Staten Island Ferry, which will take attendees back to downtown Manhattan at any point during the day.

  • I want to purchase a ticket but am landing on a password-protected page when I go to register. How do I buy tickets?

    Because space is limited to only 500 attendees, the FoST Summit is by invitation only. If you received an invitation, you should have received a password to register in your inbox. If you think you received an invite but cannot find the code to register, please contact us at info@futureofstorytelling.org. If you haven’t received an invitation but would like to attend, please submit an application on our website here.

  • I received an invitation but am unable to attend. Can I transfer my invitation over to a colleague?

    Because space is so limited and our audience is carefully curated, invitations are non-transferrable. That said, we can accept transfers on a case-by-case basis. Please reach out to us at info@futureofstorytelling.org if you would like to request to transfer your invitation.

  • I purchased a ticket but am no longer able to attend. Can I get a refund?

    Because space is so limited and our audience is carefully curated, our policy states that tickets are non-refundable. However, we can accept ticket transfers on a case-by-case basis. Please reach out to us at info@futureofstorytelling.org if you would like to request to transfer your ticket over to a friend or colleague. Please note there is a $250 fee for ticket transfers.

  • I received an email that FoST is unable to offer me an invitation. I really want to attend! What now?

    We receive an extremely high volume of requests every year, and while we would love to be able to accommodate everyone, unfortunately space is limited. But we encourage you to apply again next year!

  • I just applied to attend. When can I expect to hear back?

    We review applications on a rolling basis as space is available, and you can expect to hear back from us no more than two weeks after submitting an application.

  • Do you offer discounts for nonprofits?

    Each year we set aside a limited number of subsidized tickets for nonprofits, academics, and creatives who could otherwise not afford to attend the event. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please contact us at info@futureofstorytelling.org.

  • Can I volunteer?

    Yes! We are always looking for talented volunteers. Please apply at fost.org/volunteer.
