A-Fest, Mindvalley's experiential curated event that gathers a global tribe of 350+ of entrepreneurs, visionaries and inspiring leaders, has announced the dates and location for its 2016 Europe event.
A-Fest Europe 2016 will take place Thursday, May 26 – Sunday, May 29 in Mykonos, Greece, in a hotel nestled in the heart of Greece's most famous cosmopolitan island. This location is already proving to be the most sought-after location in the event's history.
The 4 day event -- which has in the past attracted notable speakers such as Emmy Award-winning actress Patricia Arquette, musical composer and lyricist Jeff Marx of Avenue Q fame, New York Times best-selling authors like Chris Guillebeau, inventors like Tom Chi, famed hotelier Chip Conley and many more -- gathers entrepreneurs, employees, artists, leaders, innovators, visionaries and more, to be immersed in learning, growth, and experiential connective experiences in a 5-Star paradise location.
“We think A-Fest and the model of tribe-building that brings together thought leaders to learn, share, network and collaborate in a one-of-a-kind setting is an ideal vehicle for helping our attendees to further unleash their potential and play a bigger game," says A-Fest Event Director, Tanya Lopez. "We're especially excited to bring in some of today's leading thinkers around the theme of "Biohacking: Mind and Body" and feature content that will help attendees improve their mind and body performance."
Attendees will be learning from some of the greatest minds in the bio-hacking world including; renowned Bio-Hacker Dave Asprey, America's Best-Selling Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin, New York Best-Selling Author and Founder of the UltraWellness Center Dr. Mark Hyman, Patient & Medical Technologist Robin Farmanfarmaian, star of "The Secret" Lisa Nichols, Leading Motivational Speaker & Celebrity Therapist Marisa Peer, one of the world's leading experts in meditation Emily Fletcher, Professor of Neurosciences at Stanford Dr Andrew Huberman, Mindvalley and A-Fest Founder Vishen Lakhiani and many more.
While the learning topics of the event are incredible, A-Fest’s main attraction has always been the attendees. Previous attendees have included broadway playwrights, award-winning actors, NFL and NBA athletes, best-selling authors, world-class speakers and more. Each event typically has delegates from nearly 40 different countries around the world.
The event donates a substantial portion of its proceeds to charitable causes. Past beneficiaries have included Patricia Arquette’s GiveLove, dedicated to improving global sanitation; Lynne Twist’s Pachamama Alliance, a foundation that helps preserve over 8 million acres of rainforest in the Ecuadorian Amazon; and Tiffany Person’s Shine on Sierra Leone, dedicated to creating local sustainable programs to promote thriving self-sufficient communities. Since 2013, a portion of the proceeds generated from A-Fest have benefited The X Prize Foundation, an educational nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity through incentivised worldwide challenges and competitions.
A-Fest attendees also have the chance to make a difference through Give Back Day. Happening after each A-Fest event, this full-day, community-focused initiative is designed to give attendees the opportunity to participate in a project which gives back to the local community in which the event takes place. Often a highlight of A-Fest, past projects have included planting gardens and building structures, beautification of local community centers, fundraising efforts, providing consulting services to small business owners, leading movement, learning and play activities with local children, and more.
Each year A-Fest receives thousands of applications for around 350 spots at each of its two annual events. A curated event, tickets are available upon application and approval--attendees are selected based on their desire to create a positive impact in the world.
