Now in its 10th year, the Meeting of the Minds annual summit brings together 400+ opinion-shapers, policy-makers, leading thinkers and innovators from 25+ countries for two and half days of intensive exchange in thought leadership and cross-sector alliance building. Gathered together, you will have unique opportunities to think critically, ask questions, share tools, identify new best practices, and build lasting partnerships — which make smarter and more sustainable cities possible.

The focus of Meeting of the Minds is the ‘innovator’, whether you sit inside a large firm, an influential organization, or a start-up. Our 400+ participants are scaling up practical urban solutions, shaping new policies, deploying new technologies, embedding new innovations into mainstream institutions, and blazing new trails where partnerships can flourish.

We invite established and emerging leaders from the public sector, private sector, non-profit, academia, and philanthropy to identify innovations and best practices that can be scaled, replicated and transferred from city-to-city and across sectors. These are leaders who work with and for cities and/or who lead city initiatives focused on transforming urban communities.

For our 10-year anniversary, we are designing new sessions and formats that will enable you to intimately connect with like-minded leaders focused on the same issue areas, dive deeply into sessions that you shape and lead, and more time than ever before to participate.
