Washington Ideas Forum

Washington, District of Columbia / October 4 – 6, 2011

Presented by The Atlantic and the Aspen Institute, the Washington Ideas Forum is a groundbreaking gathering of newsmakers, industry innovators, and leading journalists for two days of debate, conversation, and idea-sharing.

Inspired by The Atlantic's enduring partnership with the Aspen Ideas Festival, the third-annual Washington Ideas Forum gathered an audience of over 600 guests, including government officials, top business executives, global thought leaders, academics, and celebrities. It is the place to hear - and meet - the most prominent thinkers of our time.

On October 5 and 6, the Forum once again brought the best and brightest to the table for debate, conversation, and idea-sharing.
