Investment Ideas for Unconventional Times

Join Chris in Sonoma (just 1 hour north of San Francisco) for a unique gathering with of some of the strongest independent thinkers of our day. Attendees will hear from speakers and participate in conversations about big and important ideas that escape the myopic focus of most market participants.

Chris will be speaking at this event, along with:

  • John Hussman
  • Michael Pettis
  • Jim Chanos
  • John Mauldin
  • Mike "Mish" Shedlock

The conference will cover a variety of themes ranging from China to monetary policy to resource constraints and the limits of growth. Attendees can expect to walk away from a greater understanding of these challenges, some likely outcomes of the current trajectory, and some ideas about how to best navigate what lies ahead.

Net proceeds will benefit ALS research through the Les Turner ALS Foundation.

The conference will be held all day on Friday April 5 and will be followed by a special VIP Speakers Dinner that evening which is open to the first 25 registrants. The dinner will be a chance for some more intimate conversations over world class food and drink in delightful wine country. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and greet our very talented group of speakers. Please see Conference Agenda for costs and other details.

Some attendees may choose to make a weekend of it and spend Saturday enjoying a few of Sonoma and Napa county’s favorite activities like golf, wine tasting, hiking or biking. Spouses and other guests are welcome.

Anything cheaper?

I might be actually be planning a trip over to the US West Coast next spring, so this really grabbed my attention as a chance to potentially hear Chris speak in person and meet a few folks.

That is of course until I saw the prices!  (Too much for me even if I could deduct taxes)

Do you have plans for any other more reasonably priced events next spring?  And hey no jokes about mean Scots.. ;p

All the best for the ALS Foundation, here's some more info for anyone interested...

Cheap seats?

I'd love to attend and could if there were cheap seats in the back of the room. I would volunteer to sell books.

Wow - sticker shock

The high cost of the session seems out of whack with the goals/philosophy of PP.

Have I assessed this community to be something that it's not?

pricey area

People from Silicon Valley and San Francisco could probably afford it easily and its nearby.

A more affordable option, particularly if you are in the east, would be the March 17 seminar at Rowe, MA.

The price isn't posted, but I know it's a lot cheaper than the Sonoma event.

Event clarification

This April Wine Country Conference in Sonoma is an event Chris is participating in, not hosting. It's being produced by Mike Shedlock's Sitka Pacific Group to raise funds for the Les Turner ALS Foundation (Mish's wife died from ALS last year).

It is a high-ticket event; partly because it's a fundraiser, and partly because the speaker lineup is so strong (these 6 minds have never been in the same location at the same time before) and the very close personal access attendees will enjoy.

As Doug mentioned, there are two seminars that Chris, Becca and I are producing in 2013: one at Rowe in March and one at Kripalu in July (link coming soon). Those are more affordable and for a longer duration. They also cover much different material (the focus is on resilient living) than this Wine Country Event will.
