Established in 2013, Brigadoon is the global community where creative, curious, and compelling entrepreneurs and thought leaders gather to discuss emerging issues shaping commerce and culture.
Brigadoon is an opt-in, word of mouth community of leaders looking to learn from others to create a network of leaders committed to public service, solving problems, and building businesses.
From salon dinners, to excursions and multi-day retreats, Brigadoon organizes a number of events in distinctive settings that involve all participants and foster deeper connections.
The Brigadoon secret:
Bring a unique, global network of subject matter experts together in distinctive settings that intellectually challenges participants
Ensure maximum conversations and discussions
Events are more retreat and less conference
Gatherings and conversations are under Chatham House rules
No powerpoints - ever
Program activities that foster deeper connections
How Brigadoon makes it work:
Produce a diverse, global network of experts from different sectors, countries, and backgrounds
Create a platform to release ideas and exchange best practices using offline and online techniques
Participants seek knowledge from others who have unique perspectives not frequently seen in your daily life
Create a multi-decade foundation of leaders committed to public service, solving problems, and building businesses
Construct gatherings that are more transformational and not transactional
Why Attend = 9 Reasons to Attend Brigadoon Sundance 2019
The world is cluttered with worn-out conference formats, one-way panel events, and stuffy corporate dinners
Gatherings rarely connect onstage information with offstage networking opportunities and ongoing conversations
Legacy events are myopic and don't bring a collection of well-rounded attendees to the same place at the same time
Leave the gathering smarter and more energized
No dreadful powerpoint presentations
The conversations cover emerging issues shaping commerce and culture
Hear and learn from insiders and subject matter experts
Alpine mountain activities = ski, snowshoe, hike, fly fish, yoga, plus photography and art classes

Brigadoon will organize its seventh gathering of entrepreneurs and thought leaders at Sundance Mountain Resort this winter. Participants will come from around the globe to discuss emerging issues shaping commerce and culture.
The dates for Brigadoon Sundance 2019 are February 24-26.
The event is more retreat and less conference.
Think of it as a mountain weekend where participants are exposed to new ideas, discuss global issues, talk about enterprise, play in the mountains, and ultimately leave the gathering smarter.
Brigadoon is an opt-in, word of mouth event. Participants are individuals who possess significant expertise on issues that touch all parts of our daily lives, but in areas, we may know little about because of our expertise.
Brigadoon engages its participants with several hands-on meetings, meals designed to expand your network, outdoor sports, whiteboard sessions, and creative activities.
There will be plenty of time for two-way conversations and individual reflection, which we all know is valuable.
The gathering has an intimate feel with just 50 participants. Venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, journalists, communicators, designers, producers, doctors, lobbyists, thought leaders, and athletes comprise the attendee list.
Brigadoon’s real value is unique in a world cluttered with worn-out conference formats and one-way panel events. Participants find value in both what is happening on stage as much as what is going on off stage.
Ticket sales end on January 24, 2019.
