The Forum is a gathering of 48 elite participants in this field. It does not feature traditional presentations, and revolves around the active participation of all those in attendance. The goal is to foster active discussion and debate on the topics selected by the Steering Committee.
This is an intense day-and-a-half of meetings. In addition to the six sessions, there is informal time for conversations and building relationships during the receptions and meals. This is not a "holiday" type program. Significant others or guests do not participate in the social events, meals, or during the sessions at the Forum. The intent of the program is for everyone to talk to their peers, rather than talking to their peer’s guest. Given the short time you are all together, we try to keep it focused on business.
Arrival and Departure
Check in begins at 4:00 p.m. We ask that you please arrive prior to the Welcome Cocktail Reception, which is at 7:00 p.m. on the first night. The Forum concludes after lunch on the final day.
Extending Your Stay
Should you wish to extend your stay at the hotel, we would be pleased to inquire about availability and a preferred rate on your behalf. Please contact Emma Cowie.
Reading Materials and Participant Roster
A few weeks prior to the Forum, you will receive a new password so you can access pre-reading materials and a roster of other participants.
We suggest business attire for the cocktail receptions and dinners. Casual business attire is appropriate for the meetings. Please note that the hotel has a wide range of facilities available, including state of the art fitness, walking trails, and spa. Pack accordingly.
