Lake Nona Impact Forum
March 8-10, 2023
Lake Nona, FL
The Lake Nona Impact Forum was founded in 2012 as a gathering for companies and thought leaders in healthcare and wellness innovation. Held in Lake Nona, FL., the conference hosts 300 attendees including government and policy leaders, physicians and healthcare pioneers, prolific academics, technology visionaries, as well as promising start-ups, professional athletes and entertainers, and C-Suite executives. This year’s program will cover topics climate change and public health, brain health, health equity, cancer prevention, food as medicine, and more. Note: the event is invitation-only.
March 10-19, 2023
The inimitable South by Southwest is back and better than ever. 2022 was the first year that the tech-music-film-culture festival was able to resume in person, and 2023 promises to be even more active. Keynotes for this year include the CEO of Patagonia, and guests from NASA, including the team leader and several deputy project scientists for the James Webb Space Telescope. Additional keynote speakers, featured conference speakers, and musical guests will be announced in the coming weeks. Registration options include in-person or online participation.
April 14-16 & 21-23, 2023
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has become a must-do for many people, especially those who love music. It has also become one of the most in-demand concert tickets. Held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA., the musical lineup each year is a who’s who of popular music, spanning genres and often breaking entertainment boundaries. This year’s lineup includes headliners Bad Bunny, BlackPink, and Frank Ocean, along with notable acts like Chemical Brothers, Blondie, boygenius, Charlie XCX, Bjork, and DJ Calvin Harris.
April 17-21, 2023
The theme for TED this year is “Possibility,” during which speakers and participants can explore opportunities for our current system, or lives, to expand. TED continues to be a platform for visionary thinkers, and if you can stomach the $10,000 registration fee, it’s well worth your time. Held in the beautiful Vancouver Convention Centre, which sits right on the water, you could consider the experience at TED as a vacation for your mind. Speakers have yet to be announced publicly, but you can sign up for updates here and watch previous TED conference talks to see past TED speakers.
The Met Gala
May 1, 2023
Metropolitan Museum, New York
If you didn’t already know, the fashion industry’s “Big Night Out” is an annual (and very effective) fundraiser for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. This year’s theme is “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty” in honor of the legendary designer who passed away in 2019. Met curator, Andrew Bolton, has said that the event will not be a traditional retrospective of Lagerfeld, but a look at the evolution of his vision, via the sketches he created that, became clothing that landed on the runway. Each year, designers interpret the theme into outfits for their clients to wear to the event–clients that include the biggest names in fashion, film, music, theater, culture, and society.
Summit at Sea
May 18-21, 2023
The Summit Conference Series has become a go-to experience for multi-generational conference-goers. Past speakers have included Jane Fonda, Jeff Bezos and his brother Mark, Malcolm Gladwell, DJ Mark Ronson, John Legend, and others who blend creativity with innovation and business. Conference formats range from talks and on-stage interviews to experiences like performance art, culinary events, and concerts. This year’s lineup includes designer Stefan Sagemeister, Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and CEO of Starwood, Tristan Harris of the Center for Humane Technology, Dr. Peter Attia (see this month’s cover), and DJ Spindarella, formerly of Salt-n-Pepa.
