Over the course of its 16-year history, the annual Ideacity conference has more than earned its reputation as 'Canada's Premier Meeting of the Minds'. Playing host to a mélange of distinguished thinkers, from artistic talents and literary heavyweights, to innovative scientists and visionary entrepreneurs, ideacity is more than just a stage to air new concepts – it's an incubator for inspiration.

Presented by Moses Znaimer each June, the convergence of those 50 unique intellectuals and adventurers invariably results in lively discussion and enlightenment. With only 600 spaces in the audience, ideacity benefits from an engaged and informed viewership, and a crowd that consistently matches our speakers' enthusiasm and zeal.

As a result, the ideacity experience is as much about those attending as it is about those speaking, both onstage and off. The three-day gathering offers an unprecedented opportunity for audience members to mingle and connect with varied and distinguished presenters, including alumni such as Deepak Chopra, Margaret Atwood, Romeo Dallaire, Robert Kennedy Jr., Jann Arden, and Michael Ignatieff, is central to the conference.
