The 2018 Bilderberg Meeting is currently taking place in Turin, Italy. The meeting is scheduled to begin today, and end on June 10th.

According to an official press release, participants will give special focus to political issues such as the growing wave of populism in Europe and the Middle East’s regional conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran. In a growing trend among groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg participants will also discuss what they term as the “post-truth” world. The meetings are held under the “Chatham House Rule,” which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speakers nor of any other participant may be revealed.

Although the Bilderberg Group was shrouded in secrecy for several decades following its inaugural meeting in 1954, it has in recent years taken on a more public profile and become a prestigious networking opportunity for the world’s elite (although security and privacy policies surrounding the event remain fairly stringent).

Notable participants for this year’s event include Henry Kissinger, Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg, Founder of Alphabet Inc.’s Jigsaw Jared Coehn, President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace William J. Burns, Director of the University of Milan’s Laboratory of Stem Cell Biology Elena Cattaneo, Royal Dutch Shell plc CEO Ben van Beurden and billionaire Peter Thiel.
