ideacity Conference


Each June, 50 of the planet’s brightest minds converge in Toronto to give the talk of their lives (in 17 minutes or less) to a highly engaged audience. Only 600 are privileged to attend.

Ideacity is an incredible view of the best in original and accomplished thinking. The conference is not themed around any one topic, issue or business. Rather, it’s an eclectic gathering of artists, adventurers, authors, cosmologists, doctors, designers, entertainers, filmmakers, inventors, magicians, musicians, scientists and technologists. You’ll wonder just who Moses will pull out of his hat next!

There are no scripted speeches, breakout or parallel sessions. Everyone is in one place and experiencing the same narrative.

With extra-long schmooze breaks between sessions and legendary parties each night, attendees have had an unprecedented opportunity to mingle with the remarkable personalities.
