Senior Associates make their own hotel reservations and should mention the Foresight Institute Gathering to obtain the reduced room rate. There are a limited number of rooms available, so make your reservations early. (If the Crowne Plaza Cabaña fills up we can recommend other accommodations.) Attendees with special needs should inform the Foresight office at least one month before the meeting.

Press Policy

Foresight works closely with journalists year-round, providing orientation, pointers to experts, and free registration to our fall technical conference.

This Foresight Gathering is "off-the-record" for press coverage; we ask that press not publish coverage of event content. It's a great place to get background, however, and many participants are happy to give interviews on the side.

Reasons for this request include: (1) participants are encouraged to explore controversial issues, often testing out positions they will later abandon; (2) even with considerable care, it's hard to keep these controversial issues from being accidently taken out of context; (3) many participants hold spokesperson roles in their organizations, so their personal views are likely to be misinterpreted as the organizations' official positions, regardless of how clearly they are identified otherwise.

We've been told that press members find substantial benefit in attending without doing formal coverage; they are able to participate fully in the event, without having to continually distance themselves from the process and play the role of observer.

As full participants, members of the press are asked to join as Senior Associates and register for the event using the standard process. We look forward to welcoming additional Senior Associates from the fourth estate!
