The Aspen Institute hosts special events throughout the year to celebrate and honor the accomplishments of those who champion values of the Institute. Attendees have the opportunity to engage with leading business executives, philanthropists, and iconic figures for evenings of thoughtful conversations, star-studded performances, gourmet dinners, and exclusive receptions.
The Aspen Institute is looking forward to coming together for a special in-person event in Aspen this summer, as well as a return to the Annual Awards Dinner this fall in New York. These events will take place in person in adherence with state and local health and safety guidance. Our in-person events will serve as a powerful signal that the Aspen Institute is back! We look forward to sharing more information about these events and how we plan to execute them safely shortly. Thank you for bearing with us as we take every precaution across the Institute to ensure the safety of our staff, patrons, and community. We look forward to raising a glass with all of you this summer!
For those who cannot attend in person, abbreviated versions of these programs will be made available online.
