Hunt still on for site of 2014 conference of global powerbrokers
At least three other luxury hotels are fully booked for the weekend of the 2014 Bilderberg Group conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, suggesting the secretive cabal is attempting to throw reporters off the scent in an effort to hide the location of the meeting, although the Marriott Hotel is still the prime candidate.
Another possibility is that the confab will not take place in Copenhagen at all and will instead be held at a secluded location in a nearby area.
Founded in 1954, Bilderberg is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America.
Every year, between 120-150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media are invited to take part in the conference.
About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; one third from politics and government and the rest from other fields.
The conference is a forum for informal discussions about megatrends and major issues facing the 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 speaker(s) nor of any other participant may be revealed.
Thanks to the private nature of the conference, the participants are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions. As such, they can take time to listen, reflect and gather insights.
There is no detailed agenda, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.
The 62nd Bilderberg meeting will take place at the end of May 2014 in Denmark.
