Get on the Advance Notice List for the next one!

June 11 – 20, 2020





Every year, our Summit at Sea™ features a diverse collection of experts in real estate, investing, economics, precious metals, currency, energy, financial strategy, and entrepreneurship.


We never know for sure who’s coming until several weeks before we sail. But in 17 years, we’ve never failed to deliver the most dynamic and diverse brain trust of any conference in our space.


And unlike a typical conference where you sit in an audience and listen to people on stage … the Summit at Sea experience is MUCH more personal and interactive.


It’s YOUR chance to get to know, talk with, and become friends with some of the biggest brains out there.


More importantly, the Summit is about seeing your portfolio and opportunities in the context of the global trends … and looking at current challenges and opportunities from all angles.


There’s really no place else we know of where you get the kind of access and insight you’ll enjoy on the Summit at Sea™.


So let’s take a look at who’s already on board for 2019 …

The Summit is the ULTIMATE investing education and networking event. And it ALWAYS sells out.


We’ve been at this for SIXTEEN years. No one has EVER walked away saying the Summit wasn’t totally worth the time and expense. In fact, over 75% of the people on last year’s Summit re-registered… without having any idea who was coming or where we were going.


Yeah. It’s THAT awesome.


Remember … just ONE great idea or relationship can make all the time and expense totally worth it.


The Summit is like fishing in barrel for strategic relationships and brilliant ideas. It would take YEARS and many thousands of dollars in travel and networking to get match what you can do in just ten DAYS.
