We recommend you arrive in Los Angeles midday Friday, November 2nd. Programming will kick off early afternoon and you won't want to miss it!


Official programming will conclude Sunday night, so we recommend that you depart Monday at your convenience. 


We are adding a full day pre-event (Thursday, Nov. 1st) to LA18 to focus on connecting attendees around topics of interests, industries, and causes.

If you want to attend our pre-events, we recommend flying into Los Angeles the morning of November 1st.

This full day pre-event includes:

We're launching intimate group forums, which we are calling "Circles," to make it easier to share knowledge and connect with the people you most want to meet.

Circles will gather around subjects like environment and climate change, entertainment and media, flow state, mental health, relationships, and mindfulness in a format designed for intimacy.

Attendees nominate the topics and drive the conversation.

Early Campus Access
We're unveiling Summit's custom-built, open-air park in the heart of our 3.5-block campus a day early and opening early registration for those who reserve a spot at the pre-event. This is your place to kick it and meet great people in a relaxed environment before the main event starts.

Wi Spa Takeover
Connect with other Summiters with full-day access to Wi Spa – America's premier Korean bath house. Get transported worlds away by hot and cold baths and specialty sauna rooms alongside great company.

We're hosting parties at select venues in downtown Los Angeles before official program kickoff. There's a vibe for everyone.

To access the pre-day, you must register for LA18 by August 9.
