The Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas, Inc., will hold its second major conference in Metropolitan Detroit on March 4 and 5, 2018. People who wish to attend it must RSVP in advance; space is limited.
The private conference will be an opportunity for identitarian and Alt-Right activists and leaders to discuss the future of their movement and to coordinate their activities at this fun and inspirational extravaganza. No more than 300 people will be permitted to register to attend the conference, which will cost $40 per person to attend so that some costs can be recovered.
The location of the conference and itinerary will not be publicly disclosed. People who are interested in being permitted to attend the two-day long conference should contact FMI Executive Director Kyle Bristow by email at BristowLaw[at]gmail.com. Thorough vetting of prospective attendees will occur.
Confirmed speakers of the conference so far include Kyle Bristow, Richard Spencer, Matthew Heimbach, and Cameron Padgett.
After a prospective attendee is vetted and pays the $40 attendance fee after being approved to participate, they will be provided the name and address of the hotel at which attendees are encouraged to stay. The evening before the conference, the itinerary will be emailed to the registered attendees.
The extremely simplified version of the itinerary includes the following events:
Sunday, March 4, 2018
6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. – Conference at a reserved venue. Dinner and alcoholic drinks will be provided. Brief speeches by Kyle Bristow, Richard Spencer, Matthew Heimbach, and Cameron Padgett will take place.
Monday, March 5, 2018
4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. - Attendees of FMI's conference will attend Cameron Padgett's Michigan State University event at which Richard Spencer will speak. (Note that FMI is unaffiliated with Padgett's MSU event, but Padgett has invited the attendees of FMI's conference to attend it.)
8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. - Dinner party at a restaurant which will be reserved for attendees of FMI's conference.
When FMI hosted a conference during the summer of 2016 in Detroit, over sixty attendees toured the ruins of Detroit, met during one evening for informative speeches at a scenic location—with an open bar and catered hors d'oeuvres—, explored the Detroit Institute of Arts, met for brunch in a swank suburb bistro, and enjoyed a dinner at a private room of a traditional Polish restaurant in a Polish enclave of Southeast Michigan.
This will not be a conference you will want to miss.
