Bos­ton is well on its way to be­com­ing one of the glam-in­tel­lec­tual cap­i­tals of the world. For the sec­ond year in a row, the Forbes Un­der 30 Sum­mit de­scends Oc­to­ber 1 to 4 un­leash­ing some of the great­est thinkers, do­ers and dis­rup­tors for a fer­vent mind mash-up. “The en­ergy is that these are the peo­ple who will col­lec­tively run the world for the next 50 years,” says Forbes Edi­tor Ran­dall Lane. The sum­mit con­venes some 7,000 lead­ing en­trepreneurs, CEOs, founders and in­vestors. There’s a heavy celebrity quo­tient with ac­tor Ash­ton Kutcher, Con­gress­man Seth Moul­ton and per­former/ ac­tivist Asia Kate Dil­lon top­ping the list of speak­ers. Head­quar­tered at City Hall Plaza, the event amps up its health­care and science pro­gram­ming this year. At­ten­dees binge on thought and then wash it all down with a pop-up beer gar­den, food fes­ti­val and the A-list Un­der 30 Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

Ex­pect se­ri­ous star wattage at the Forbes Un­der 30 Sum­mit 2017 to be as pow­er­ful as head­liner Halsey, who kicked off the four-day con­fer­ence at Bos­ton’s 2016 in­au­gu­ral block­buster.
