The Ministry of Ideas invites creative thinkers from around the world and across industries to unpack and forecast the latest trends; challenge participants to think differently; and inspire unexpected innovation.
Our un-conference rips up the rulebook on conventional conferences with an immersive programme designed to promote collaboration, maximise creativity and cause conversations that will inspire the evolution of contemporary travel.
Join visionaries, experts and innovators at the top of their fields for illuminating talks and conversations on the most relevant topics facing contemporary travel.
Real trends and innovations don’t come from just one place: they arise from the complex crossover of social, environmental and cultural shifts around the world. Consequently, we believe that to inspire change within contemporary travel, we need to look outside it.
Shared Ideas are talks and panel discussions from visionaries in the worlds of technology, media, fashion, music and beyond, chosen to identify potential shifts, foster lateral thinking and the transference of ideas, and encourage creative risk-taking.
WHAT WE’LL BE TALKING ABOUT
We’ve identified three themes we believe will have a huge impact on contemporary travel in years to come, and have selected our speakers based on their expertise, creativity and innovations in these areas.
What does ‘community’ mean in an age when consumers are searching for connection – both online and offline?
What role should travel play in the interplay of technology and the human – and how can we benefit from these brave new worlds?
How are consumer desires and habits evolving in light of the current climate of political, economic and social change – and how should we respond?
Take the stage and tell us about an idea you’ve had that might change the future of travel.
This is your chance to pitch a groundbreaking (or BIG) idea to the LE collective that might just change the future of contemporary travel.
It doesn’t even have to be ready to implement – it just needs to be a bold vision that you think could have a huge impact. This is your chance to position yourself and your brand as true thought leaders.
HOW IT WORKS
Pitch us your BIG IDEA for a chance to share it on the main stage at the Ministry of Ideas. But beware: this is NOT a sales pitch! You’ll deliver 15 slides in just 3 minutes and 45 seconds – that’s only 15 seconds per slide so make it short, sharp and smart.
DO YOU HAVE A BIG IDEA?
Check out this example from the Ministry of Ideas 2016. If you’re up to the challenge, applications for BIG IDEAS are now OPEN. Pitch us your big idea by Friday 12 May to be in with the chance of taking the stage.
