Century of Genius

An Unforgettable Experience

To celebrate the centennial of Einstein's Relativity theory and to launch the publication of Genius: 100 Visions of the Future, we will be Celebrating a Century of Genius at a star studded event that will bring together our Genius contributors, along with young Einsteins and dignitaries from around the world. The Dinner will represent one of the greatest gatherings of Nobel laureates, intellectuals, artists and scientists of our time, and promises to inspire a new generation of creative thinkers. The Dinner will take place on Sunday, September 10th, 2017, in Montreal, Canada.
Prior to the Dinner, a Genius 100: Innovation Summit will take place, with some of the greatest minds on the planet speaking on topics ranging from science and technology, to the environment, education, the arts and literature.
