Washington Ideas Forum, September 29 - October 1, 2010

In 2009, The Atlantic, in partnership with the Aspen Institute and the Newseum, introduced the inaugural Washington Ideas Forum.

During two days of programming, renowned journalists in key sectors drew out a "First Draft of History" from firsthand accounts of, and personal reflections upon, the events of the historic first year of the Obama administration delivered by a cross-section of leaders in government, business, and education.

Four events (ranging in size from intimate editorial breakfast briefings to a large-scale reception in the Newseum’s Great Hall) and 24 program sessions brought more than 500 individuals together, including members of Congress, University presidents, nonprofit executives, renowned authors, prominent members of the media, and business leaders from virtually every major industry.

This year, an impressive list of speakers and panelists has already lined up to take part in Washington Ideas Forum 2010.  The event joins business and thought leaders from around the country and across international borders, with policy makers in Washington, D.C. for a 360° view of the past year's events and in depth look at what lies in the year ahead.

For those unable to attend, the event programming and content, including livestream video of all mainstage events, will be covered on TheAtlantic.com.
