    About this conference

    We believe that with ideas we create the future. Much of the world-changing innovation that we are witnessing in the 21st century emerges at and from the intersections of many disciplines – science, the arts, business, design, technology, education, medicine and beyond. This innovative thinking occurs most frequently when you have the opportunity to step away from your regular routine and learn about, discuss and explore how to integrate diverse and seemingly unrelated ideas and connections. The IdeaFestival remedies this often-missed opportunity by providing a unique “space” for the convergence of break-through thinking and lively debate. This series of events attracts leading innovators and curious minds from across the nation and around the globe.

    About IdeaFestival

    Founded in 2000, the IdeaFestival (IF) is a world-class event that attracts leading and highly diverse thinkers from across the nation and around the globe to explore and celebrate innovation, imagination and cutting-edge ideas.

    The IdeaFestival is a unique non-linear event designed to stretch people's horizon's and promote breakthrough thinking... utilizing multiple venues to showcase, discuss and "connect" important ideas in science, the arts, design, business, film, technology, education, etc.

    The Festival is designed to appeal to a broad cross-section of people - with presenters selected for their ideas, achievements, and their ability to communicate to a wide-ranging audience.

    An important value of the IF is its accessibility. Strong support from sponsors allows the event to be priced at a level (with many events free) that provides for participation by a large and diverse audience, including students and young people.
