The Rīga Conference takes pride in itself as the meeting place of local and global elites since its inception in 2006. In the past, the Rīga Conference have been honored with the presence of countless heads of state, heads of government, ministers, NATO and EU officials, and ambassadors – from all around the world. In addition to the extensive list of speakers, over 500 participants attend the conference every year, listening to and interacting with high-level policy makers.
Over the course of the last decade, The Rīga Conference has built a reputation across the region. Highlights have included having the Prime Ministers of Latvia, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, and Finland together in the same room to discuss economic growth in a time of austerity; the presentation by Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili in 2008 and the address by President of the United States George W. Bush in 2006.
The Rīga Conference 2020 will be taking place on the 12th and 13th of November, 2020. This is a special year for The Rīga Conference since it is it’s 15th anniversary. The event will proceed in a hybrid form- with a limited number of participants in person and a wider audience online. This year, amongst other things, the relevance of NATO on both sides of the Atlantic, COVID-19 consequences for defence, a post-pandemic global order, EU resilience in crisis, as well as Infodemia and other issues will be debated.
