Milken Conference Returns as In-Person Event After Going Virtual


The Milken Institute will hold its annual conference in-person in October after going virtual last year.

The event, organized by billionaire financier Michael Milken’s think tank, will take place in Beverly Hills, California, from Oct. 17 to 20, according to a statement issued Thursday. Some parts of the conference will be livestreamed, the organizers said.

Focusing on the theme of “Charting a New Course,” it will be held at the Beverly Hilton hotel and delve into the disruptions and innovations wrought by the global pandemic. The event has historically gathered some of the world’s most influential people.

Conference organizers across industries have grappled with how and when to hold events after most were scrapped last year amid the Covid-19 pandemic. But an increase in vaccinations may have bolstered confidence in renewing gatherings. In the last week, the U.S. administered 3.4 million vaccine doses per day, according to the Bloomberg Vaccine Tracker.

SkyBridge Capital’s annual SALT Conference, which was canceled last year, will also be held in-person this year, from Sept. 13-15 in New York City’s Javits Center Expansion. It’s usually held in Las Vegas.

A representative for the Milken conference said it’s working out on-site details with health experts and is keeping government guidelines in mind, and as such could not comment on whether attendees will be required to be vaccinated.
