The Meeting Conference

Change-of-date: The Meeting will now take place September 27-29, 2022.

Due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases in Pitkin County and across the country we have made the decision to postpone The Meeting until September 27-29, 2022. Please check back closer to the fall for updated speaker information and schedule.

We hope you’ll still join us, both to make turns down our slopes and to discuss a wide array of topics, from the future of mountain tourism and content creation to the modern landscape of values-driven business and creative problem solving.

Punctuated with opportunities for attendees to go for a ski tour, take some laps via chairlift, and enjoy top-notch meals, The Meeting invites you to rub elbows with industry professionals and storytellers, find inspiration, and return transformed.

We’re excited to see you!

For more than a decade, "The Meeting" has evolved from a small, open-forum conversation on the roof deck of the Mountain Chalet to a carefully curated conference, with speakers including authors, independent strategists, athletes and creators plus leaders from companies such as Audi, Red Bull, National Geographic, Twitter, Bank of the West, Stance, and more.

Creating a unique opportunity to network, share space, explore our mountains and challenging topics, The Meeting invites you to find inspiration and return transformed. We hope you’ll join us.

Who Should Attend?

The Meeting is perfect for content creators, social and digital strategists, marketing professionals, influencers, account managers, public relations professionals and anyone looking to be inspired and grow!
If mountain biking, hiking, dinners, product testing, live music, movies and listening to inspiring speakers sounds like your idea of "Networking" then The Meeting is for you. We've meticulously put together a roster of people you want meet, and the atmosphere you want to be in.
