A host of critically-acclaimed innovators and leaders from around the World will gather in Chicago this October to share their expertise at the fifth-annual Chicago Ideas Week (CIW).
Events will be held October 12-18, 2015 at various venues across the City of Chicago and give attendees an opportunity to engage, learn, and celebrate curiosity.
The 160+ events will be comprised of talks, conversations, and labs sessions to choose from.
CIW Talks range in topics from Creative Process, Politics, and Entrepreneurship and are typically 90-minutes in length with a handful of speakers leading each presentation.
CIW Conversations are an hour-long and are led by fewer presenters about contemporary topics. Conversations also allow time for audience Q&A following the presentation.
CIW Labs are smaller, more intimate sessions which; “take you behind-the-scenes at Chicago organizations including IDEO, Ignite Glass, Lifeway Foods, Millennium Park and more,” according to the CIW website.
