Summit Format


The Summit provides an informal, interactive setting for dialogue. To facilitate frank discussion, the Summit emphasizes a “talk show” style format, follows a modified Chatham House Rule, and does not use PowerPoint presentations.

Plenary Sessions

The Summit features expert panels led by engaging moderators who drive the discussion. We place a strong emphasis on audience interaction, incorporating substantial dialogue with Summit delegates.

Roundtable Discussions

In intimate roundtable discussions, smaller groups explore more specific topics. Brief presentations are followed by moderated conversation between speakers and participants.

Targeted Publications

In preparation for the Summit, we commission papers to give context to ongoing policy debates. Advance copies of these publications are provided exclusively to Summit delegates.

Moderated Remarks

Summit mealtimes are enhanced by well-known and engaging speakers.

Networking Opportunities

The Summit provides time for informal discussion with the diverse group of high-level attendees, including receptions, mealtimes, and breaks.
