Attendees have exceptional opportunities to interact with people shaping the world — on footpaths and sidewalks, over lunch in the pavilion or coffee at the espresso bar, in auditoriums and in small seminar rooms. The intimacy of the Festival gatherings renders the experience unique and unforgettable.
Every year, over 300 inspiring leaders bring their big ideas to the Aspen Ideas Festival. Speakers begin to be shared in the spring, with confirmations and exciting announcements happening right up until the event. Check out past speakers who have attended.
