We have now come full circle. We are returning for our 20th event to the very city, hotel, and ballroom where it all began. Our 2017 thinkAbout takes place this September at the Crowne Plaza Cleveland at Playhouse Square (formerly the Wyndham) in the heart of downtown. thinkAbout 2017 title=

This anniversary event will act as a retrospective of sorts. We do plan to go through each of the past thinkAbouts, but rather than pull out the 35mm carousel and subject you to an interminable vacation-like slideshow, we'll breeze through highlights and focus on the biggest ideas from each event.

But we won't just focus on the past. Together we'll discuss what's on our minds today, the new concepts we're mulling over right now. Many of these items surely brush up against our existing body of thought, but others will be new and never presented before.

And naturally, having focused on past and present, we'll dedicate time to the future. We'll give you and your fellow participants an active opportunity to envision where things are headed. We'll also have some other special surprises plus opportunities to meet with the two of us in more intimate settings. And you'll have the chance to catch up with your colleagues from previous thinkAbouts as well as meet brand new participants.

And here's more great news... we want to see as many old friends and new faces as we can this year, so to help out we have two big changes:

  1. First, we are not requiring Alumni Chits - meaning that this year's event is open to everyone, whether you have ever been to thinkAbout before or not.
  2. Second, we're offering special pricing for this year's event at only $1450 per person, or a full $1000 less than our standard admission fee! This fee includes admission, meals, and all event materials.

We expect a big crowd so we encourage you to act soon. Click the button to the right to learn more of what we have in store for this year and to register.

So what is thinkAbout?

It's not just another conference. Since 1998, more than 890 explorers, practitioners, and evangelists of the Experience Economy have gathered annually at thinkAbout, the flagship public offering of Strategic Horizons LLP.
Over the course of two high-energy days, executives and managers from across the globe gather to explore, share, interact, and network with others leading the way in the Experience Economy. Pine & Gilmore personally design and direct each thinkAbout as a series of staged experiences that foster creativity, innovation, learning, and idea exchange using highly interactive techniques, intense individual and group participation, and free-form exploration.
