How do we know that those who attend the Gathering have the power to change the world? Because many of them already have.

One weekend a year, some of the world’s brightest young inventors, artists, entertainers and entrepreneurs join together to stretch their minds and share big ideas. There is no pomp, and no pretense. Just incredibly accomplished, passionate people, talking earnestly about their passions. Every year, it is a weekend that changes lives.

This one of a kind event is called the GATHERING. It is invite only and it is truly unforgettable.
