A Storied Legacy

Just as Reagan and Gorbachev understood the poignancy of Reykjavik as the midpoint between Moscow and Washington, in 2017 its significance as a geographic center point and a strong and a growing and reignited progressive city and country makes it the ideal place to host SUMMIT.AHEAD.

The Reykjavik Mayor is the host for an essential generational call to action.  In the 18th and 19th Centuries being at a crossroads for trade was essential.  In 2017 being centered, accessible and engaged for discussion is fundamental to the success of ideas.  SUMMIT.AHEAD. + Reykjavik solidifies Reykjavik’s historic reputation as the meeting place for big ideas and confers on the Summit an essential historical imprimatur.
