Event Details

Tradition since 1963, the Annual Gathering has grown from a two-day meet-and-greet at the New York Belmont to a sprawling and diverse collection of programs, talks, games and entertainment typically spanning the July 4th weekend.

If your impression of Indianapolis is racetracks and cornfields, get ready to be amazed. Downtown Indy has been lauded by USA Today, Condé Nast Traveler, Zagat, and The New York Times (among others) for its cultural attractions, walkability, great food and nightlife, museums, and so much more.

Colloquium 2018

The Evolution and Revolution of Manufacturing

For decades now, manufacturing has been evolving, driven by macro- and micro-economic forces as well as advances in technology. Today, it is at a crossroads, which makes Indianapolis a fitting location to examine the economic, technological, educational, and geopolitical ramifications of how things are made and distributed.

Sponsored by the Mensa Education & Research Foundation, Colloquium 2018 will address what has led to the changes in manufacturing we see today and what we can expect in the coming years.
