World Domination Summit 2016

On August 2016, the sixth annual World Domination Summit will take over Portland, Oregon yet again. A small army of remarkable people is returning for a weekend of strategizing and adventure!

The Agenda

WDS is now starting earlier and ending later than ever with numerous unofficial gatherings taking place throughout the week. Main registration will kick off Friday, the annual opening party will take place Friday evening, and main-stage events will be held at the Newmark Theatre Saturday and Sunday.

Throughout both weekend days, the participants will alternate between the theatre for speaker talks and several smaller spaces for attendee-led meetups. The evenings will find us out and about on the town, attending your choice of group events or just decompressing on your own.

With the main stage keynotes, hundreds of attendee-led meetups, dozens of workshops known as “Academies,” a city-wide scavenger hunt, a Guinness World Record Attempt, two big parties, and hundreds of new friends high-fiving you on street corners, it’s a truly immersive and awesome experience.

On Sunday evening will be held a Farewell party that goes as long as people are around. If you never need to sleep, afterparties and early-morning parties are scheduled for each day. And if you’d like to extend your WDS experience, additional Academies will be held on the days before and after the weekend.

Everyone who comes to World Domination Summit 2016 is a big part of everything that happens. The attendees make the community strong and independent with no corporate sponsorships and nothing for sale during the event except books from the speakers.

The Plan for 2016

For 2016 there will be held a series of new WDS mini-events held throughout the city, including art shows, performances, a 5k Fun Run, and many more independent gatherings. The time together will be extended to an entire week (no longer just the weekend).

Once again the main stage will be made at the Newmark theater (where the WDM were in 2012) – a beautiful and intimate theater with only 1,000 seats.

Since there are fewer seats in this theatre, there are fewer tickets this year for main-stage keynote attendance, but many other WDS events will be offered through separate ticket purchases.

World Domination Summit 2016 Academies

This year’s Academies will include a wide range of awesome topics and feature several favourite WDS speakers from over the years.

Registration for Academies is separate from WDS itself, and they offer registration both to WDS attendees as well as to the general public (for a slightly higher registration fee).

Each Academy has a limited number of free “Insider Access” seats only available to WDS 360 and Connect attendees on a first come, first serve basis.

There is no limit to how many Academies you can register for but you can only purchase Academies for yourself. No physical ticket or confirmation will be required upon check-in, just a valid photo ID. Academy tickets are capacity controlled and offered on a first come, first served basis. All tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
