Brigadoon is bringing together a peerless group of entrepreneurs and thought leaders for our second annual event in Annapolis, Maryland.
We will gather for a special dinner at Flamant on Thursday, September 12 and enjoy a morning cruise of the Chesapeake Bay on Friday, September 13.
✔️ This will be an intimate event limited to only 16 attendees and provides open and frank discussions with all participants. Plus, you feel like a guest rather than a delegate.
✔️ Brigadoon gatherings are all powerpoint free and governed by Chatham House rules to ensure maximum conversations.
✔️ There are no lanyards or apps involved – by the end of the gathering you’ll be on first-name terms with subject matter experts from numerous industries including finance, government, business, media, architecture, design, retail, and hospitality.
✔️ Enjoy a discussion with fellow attendees on topics shaping commerce and culture in an informal and relaxed setting. Alongside the conversations and discussions, there is joyful, relaxed hospitality.
✔️ Regardless of your profession or skill set, you will be exposed to people who will inspire you to think about your work, life and home.
✔️ Brigadoon gatherings are transformational, not transactional.

Seven reasons to join us
1. Brigadoon has had a long-running affair with Annapolis.
2. Annapolis, Maryland’s capital city, is on Chesapeake Bay. Its historic district includes 18th-century brick houses, the domed 1700s Maryland State House and the US Naval Academy.
3. Flamant is recognized as one of the best restaurants in the Washington, DC metroplex. The Washington Post reports, "Washington’s loss is a coup for West Annapolis, where former District chef Frederik De Pue has set up shop in a handsome, 40-seat bungalow, invitingly staged with an herb garden on the side and a semicircle of chairs out front."
4. Maryland has a vibrant entrepreneurial community.
5. Plus, we speak about thought leaders breaking new ground.
6. Custom built for sailing, comfort and fun, the Liberte is a grand experience for all.
7. You’ll have at least on discussion on how to start up a side-hustle (that one you’ve long yeared to get on with) or expand your current operation confidently.
