50 Presenters – Legendary Parties – A Ton of Inspiration

Now in its 17th year, the annual ideacity conference has rightly earned its reputation as Canada’s “Premier meeting of the minds.”

Over the course of three days, media icon Moses Znaimer presents a dazzling line-up of some of the brightest minds on the planet. Ground breaking scientists, visionary entrepreneurs, artists, scholars, activists and agitators – if it’s new, if it’s hot, if it will challenge your thinking, it’s at ideacity.

Over the years ideacity has welcomed such distinguished presenters as Deepak Chopra, Margaret Atwood, Romeo Dallaire, and Robert Kennedy Jr. But we’ve also hosted lesser known thinkers who became superstars – like 15-year-old Jack Andraka, who discovered a test for pancreatic cancer.
