Freedom Summit Schedule (subject to change)
Internet Banner ad promotions now include the top of every page on www.DailyPaul.com I hope you will include your participation in the FreedomSummit in your communications with your supporters.
Added to the line up is
Patrick Byrne (CEO of Overstock.com) and Meghan Kellison (winner
of Porcfest X’s Soapbox Idol).
The attached graphic and radio commercial files are updated with this new information
PLEASE: Now is the time to check the schedule below and let me know of any conflicts. I also need the speech topic and a Speaker Bio (see yours at www.FreedomSummit.com) and a Preferred Photo etc.
I’m close to finishing the Event Program/Schedule but I need some final information from a few of you. Arrival times and dates will determine if you are listed for the Friday Night Pre-Summit mixer. Will Grigg and Larken Rose are the Saturday Night Dinner Speakers but we are little flexible on the rest of the schedule.
I’m hoping to make Friday night’s 6pm-9pm mixer/forum an ad hoc presentation about Intellectual Property (3D Printing/Bitcoin/Etc). Those speakers that have made plans to arrive in time on Friday night that wish to be part of a 60-90 min discussion from the stage and audience should let me know as soon as you can so we can list you as a participant.
Those interested in 3D Printing and Bitcoins are excited by the inclusion of Patrick Byrne (Overstock.com just announced their planned acceptance of Bitcoins), Cody Wilson (Dark Wallet for Bitcoin and his attack on Intellectual Property via the 3D Printing of guns demonstration) and Davi Barker from BitcoinsNotBombs. Patrick’s main presentation will be on solutions in education that he is excited about sharing, but the direct challenge to the financial system via cryptocurrencies will be on the minds of many wondering what the next phase of the LOV3olution will look like.
As it stand now the
schedule is as follows, unless there is a scheduling conflict for someone. BTW…
the trains run on time at the FreedomSummit! Presentations start and stop as
they are scheduled (this has always been a much appreciated feature in our
questionnaires) and it also helps with audio/video recordings etc.
- Vendor Setup can
start as early as Noon on Friday but no later than 6pm (Please let us know if
you need space on a set of tables that we will have available for speakers that
will be staffed by us).
Pre-Summit Friday Night
- 6pm-9pm: Speakers:
??? This is always a relaxing time that’s fun and is offered as a $25
option for those that hope to meet the speakers in a relaxed environment. For
an hour the Margaritas are free and include some appetizers (not a meal). Our original
intent in 2001 was to have a Speaker Dinner on the Friday of the FreedomSummit
but with so many speakers, and friends that wanted to participate, it quickly
turned into it’s own large event and after a couple of years it had to be moved
to the Summit venue. This worked for us well since it allowed for the testing
of the equipment etc. We will also have staff helping with early registrations.
- The schedule below
has been crafted as a result of years of questionnaires fill out by our
attendees. The return rate is always over 80% and we listened.
> Long lunches are
popular. (an optional presentation sponsored by a speaker or vendor for a $20
buffet sandwich lunch is also a popular addition).
> At least an hour
or more break before the Dinner is served is also appreciated.
> The Dinner needs
to be of quality with variety and good service. This is best accomplished
Buffet Style and is more fun.
> “Don’t drag out the Dinner Program… get to the speakers”. We do provide 3 minutes for Vendors to announce themselves.
(Your names below are linked to the bio page on www.FreedomSummit.com. Please send desired changes and additions to Donna’s email via a “ReplyAll” so we both get the information to make changes)
Full FreedomSummit Program is $350 (a freaking DEAL!... just look at the lineup :)

In years past we always reserved the venue until 9pm as part of the FreedomSummit contract so that other organizations we support could make use of the venue, but this time we wanted to offer an awesome package that would be very popular on its own and that would allow for the participation of many of the organizations and individuals that we have associated with over the years that are not as voluntarist in their philosophy but are very supportive of our activities. Issues such as Bitcoin, 3D Printing, Self-Sustainable Communities and Family Farms, Jury Nullification Activists, Agenda21 Activists, Traditional and Non-Traditional Farming and Food Production has all been made part of a certain to be popular package that will keep our Sunday afternoon attendance high. This low price is only possible due to the hotel not counting heads after the lunch on Sunday for the Catered Breaks (which is $20 per person per break… it’s a nice table of goodies :)
- 1:45pm-2:45pm: Cody Wilson
- 2:45pm-3:45pm: James Babb
- 3:45pm-4:00pm: Break
- 4:00pm-4:55pm: Rosa Kiore
- 5:00pm-5:55pm: Greg Peterson
Here in Phoenix we have cultivated many relationships that go outside the traditional Liberty Community and we are making a large effort to entice our new friends to attend this portion of the 2014 FreedomSummit. It has been crafted to provide the information desired by the people most interested at a price that is enticing for those that would not normally attend such an event (Preppers, Permaculturalists, Environmentalists, Local Farmers and their customers etc.) This portion of the FreedomSummit will be far more popular than I think many realize… watch :)
