Apply to the Bellagio Center Convening Program

Connecting Leaders to Advance Breakthrough Solutions

Successful Bellagio Center convening applications are bold, ambitious, and have a clear vision of how the convening will help make measurable progress towards an attainable goal. The Bellagio Center offers unique value in achieving these goals – a small format, intensive, and intimate setting with a diverse group of participants.

The Bellagio Center is generally not designed for convenings such as internal strategy sessions, board meetings, capstone projects, trainings, or academic symposiums. We also rarely support repeat year-on-year convenings as recurring milestones for a single project.

Because of Bellagio
