Aspen Ideas Festival 2019

The Aspen Ideas Festival is the nation’s premier public gathering for influential leaders.

Across seven days of programming the Aspen Ideas Festival engages attendees in deep and inquisitive discussion of the ideas and issues that both shape our lives and challenge our times. Some 350 presenters, 200 sessions, and 3,000 attendees comprise the annual Festival, launched in 2005, on the Aspen Institute’s campus in Aspen, Colorado.
Imagine some of the most inspired and innovative thinkers, writers, artists, business people, teachers, and other leaders drawn from myriad fields and from across the country and around the world – gathered in a single place, ready to teach, speak, lead, question and answer – all interacting with an audience of thoughtful people who have stepped back from their day-to-day routines to delve deeply into a world of ideas, thought, and discussion.
